Childhood Cancer Cells Drain Immune System’s Batteries
Cancer cells in neuroblastoma contain a molecule that breaks down a key energy source for the body’s immune cells, leaving them too physically drained to fight the disease.
Researchers Discover Immune System’s 'Trojan Horse'
Oxford University researchers have found that human cells use viruses as Trojan horses, transporting a messenger that encourages the immune system to fight the very virus that carries it.
Researchers Discover New Type of Mycovirus
Virus infects the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus, which can cause the human disease aspergillosis.
How to Become a Follicular T Helper Cell
Uncovering the signals that govern the fate of T helper cells is a big step toward improved vaccine design.
Sorting Through Cellular Statistics
Aaron Dinner, professor in chemistry, and his graduate student Herman Gudjonson are trying to read the manual of life, DNA, as part of the Dinner group’s research into bioinformatics—the application of statistics to biological research.
Women’s Immune System Genes Operate Differently from Men’s
A new technology reveals that immune system genes switch on and off differently in women and men, and the source of that variation is not primarily in the DNA.
Experimental MERS Vaccine Shows Promise in Animal Studies
A two-step regimen of experimental vaccines against Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) prompted immune responses in mice and rhesus macaques, report National Institutes of Health scientists who designed the vaccines.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
New Weapon in the Fight Against Blood Cancer
This strategy, which uses patients’ own immune cells, genetically engineered to target tumors, has shown significant success against multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells that is largely incurable.
Scientists Create CRISPR/Cas9 Knock-In Mutations in Human T Cells
In a project spearheaded by investigators at UC San Francisco, scientists have devised a new strategy to precisely modify human T cells using the genome-editing system known as CRISPR/Cas9.

Cell Analysis Market by Instruments, Consumables & Application - Global Forecast to 2018
Bookmark and Share

The cell analysis instruments market is the fastest-growing segment in the cell analysis market. In cell analysis, the accuracy of the results obtained depends on the quality of consumables, instruments, and data management software. In the recent years, advanced cell image analysis and data management solutions have been introduced, but there is scope for further improvement of these solutions. Many of the key players in the cell analysis instruments market are collaborating with companies and academic institutes in order to offer products with better software. For instance, in February 2014, Agilent Technologies (U.S.) collaborated with Cell Line Genetics (U.S.) for high throughput screening of cell line characterization services for regenerative medicine. Cell Line Genetics will develop high throughput, genomic characterizations to confirm and monitor the integrity of a cell line for translational and regenerative medicine research by using Agilent’s technologies.

In the coming years, Asian countries are expected to witness a high growth. These regions offer an array of opportunities for growth and are expected to be the new revenue pockets for players in the cell analysis market. These regions offer a high-growth potential as compared to mature markets such as the U.S. Growth in the Asian market is spurred by government support for the development of innovative screening technologies and rising demand for outsourcing of drug discovery services. For instance, in September 2013, the Global Health Innovative Technology Fund (GHIT Fund) granted $5.7 million to six global partnerships, to support their R&D activities, in the area of various infectious diseases like tuberculosis, malaria, and Chagas disease. Such funding is expected to boost the growth of the cell analysis market.
