(Professional Services Close - Up Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Research and Markets has added the "Western Blotting Market by Product, Consumables, by Application - End-User Analysis & Global Forecast to 2018" report to its offerings.
In a release, Research and Markets noted that report highlights include:
Western blotting is one of the most commonly used confirmatory tests for diagnosing diseases. This technique is extensively used in many pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, academic research institutes, and diagnostic laboratories. This technique comprises a number of manual error-prone steps, hence companies are launching automated instruments. Thus, the instruments are increasingly being adopted by researchers as they not only simplify the work and give accurate results but also save considerable time.
Automation in the western blotting workstations, global increase in life science R&D spending, growing proteomics market, rising prevalence of HIV, and companies focusing on validating the antibodies are the key factors that are expected to drive the growth of this market. However, high costs of primary antibodies and the emergence of alternative technologies restrain the growth of this market.
The global western blotting market is categorized into four broad segments, namely, products, applications, end users, and geographies. On the basis of products, the market comprises instruments and consumables. Instruments are further sub-segmented by type into manual, semi-automated, and automated.
