DUBLIN, Ireland, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/r387z9/cell_analysis) has announced the addition of the "Cell Analysis Market by Instruments, Consumables & Application- Global Forecast to 2018" report to their offering.
In the recent years, the adoption of Cell Analysis for Cell identification, single cell analysis, cell proliferation, cell signaling, cell viability, cell signaling/transduction pathway, cell counting and quality control, cell structure study, and cell interaction, has increased. The market is broadly classified based on products, applications, end users, and geographies.
The products market is further divided into instruments and consumables. The instruments market is sub-divided into cell counting instruments, microscopy, flow cytometry, high content screening, spectrophotometery, microfluidics, qRT-PCR, and cell microarrays. The consumables market is further segmented into reagents and assay kits, microplates, and other consumables.
The applications market includes cell identification, cell interaction, cell viability, cell proliferation, cell structure studies, cell signaling pathway/signal transduction, cell counting and quality control, target identification, and validation and single cell analysis. Cell identification has its application in the identification of blood cells on the basis of their size and other morphological features such as presence or absence of nucleus in the cell and shape of nucleus. Cell identification is also used in tumor cell identification with the help of Raman spectroscopy and microfluidics.
In target identification, HCS is used to identify novel targets through the screening of cellular pathways. HCS can also provide more accurate information about drug toxicity and mode of actions, which helps in further decision making and in driving the progress of drug discovery. Cell signalling pathways are used for the analysis of signalling pathways in drug discovery and therapeutic development, to differentiate drug resistant patterns in cancerous cells.
The major factors driving the growth of the market are the rising incidence of cancer, corporate and government funding for cell-based research activities, rising incidence of chronic and infectious diseases, introduction of enhanced informatics solutions and improvements in image analysis products, and growing healthcare and medical spending. Moreover, the adoption of cell analysis for cell identification and cell signaling pathways/signal transduction pathways is the key growth opportunity in this market.
