Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Researchers Develop qPCR Prognosis Test for NSCLC Patients
A nine-gene molecular prognostic index (MPI) for patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) was able to provide accurate survival stratification and could potentially inform the use of adjuvant therapy in patients struggling with the disease.
Genome Wide Annotation of Primary miRNAs Reveals Novel Mechanisms
Researchers have devised a strategy for genome-wide annotation of primary miRNA transcripts, providing extensive new annotations in human and mouse, and shedding light on mechanisms of regulation of microRNA gene expression.
‘Fishing Expedition’ Nets Nearly Tenfold Increase in Number of Sequenced Virus Genomes
Newly developed computational tool finds 12,500 genomes of viruses that infect microbes.
First Gene that Causes Mitral Valve Prolapse Identified
An international research collaboration led by MGH investigators has identified the first gene in which mutations cause the common form of mitral valve prolapse, a heart valve disorder that affects almost 2.5 percent of the population.
Automation Abound at AACC in Atlanta
Discover the latest breakthroughs, trends and products from the AACC Annual Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo.
Ultrafast DNA Diagnostics
New technology developed by UC Berkeley bioengineers promises to make a workhorse lab tool cheaper, more portable and many times faster by accelerating the heating and cooling of genetic samples with the switch of a light.
The Genetic Roots of Adolescent Scoliosis
Scientists at the RIKEN Center for Integrative Medical Sciences in collaboration with Keio University in Japan have discovered a gene that is linked to susceptibility of Scoliosis.
Diagnostic Test Developed for Enterovirus D68
researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a diagnostic test to quickly detect enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a respiratory virus that caused unusually severe illness in children last year.
Simple Technology Makes CRISPR Gene Editing Cheaper
University of California, Berkeley, researchers have discovered a much cheaper and easier way to target a hot new gene editing tool, CRISPR-Cas9, to cut or label DNA.

Life Science Consumables 2013: Markets and Opportunities
Bookmark and Share

Biopharm Reports has carried out six studies in the life science field, which examined the use of consumables in the conduct of PCR, DNA sequencing, DNA microarray, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry and disease biomarker studies. These studies, which involved the participation of more than 2200 end-users in 70 countries, were carried out to assist developers and vendors of consumables to identify market opportunities in these fields.

This Report Provides:

• Consumables : A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of consumables in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.

• Fields: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of consumables by field (biotechnology, chemicals, clinical or hospital, defence, diagnostics, energy, environmental, food and drink, forensics, geology, government, healthcare, natural products, pharmaceuticals, research institutes, security and university) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.

• Regions: A breakdown of end-user practices in the use of consumables by region (Europe, North America, Asia and Rest of World) in the conduct of PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies.

• Growth: A listing of organisations of participants in the PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker studies described in this report, according to anticipated growth in these areas, (i.e. decline in activities, activities remain the same or increase in activities).

• Market Sizes: Estimates of global markets sizes of consumables used in the PCR, DNA microarray, DNA sequencing, mass spectrometry, flow cytometry and disease biomarker fields. These estimates are based on published market sizes of these fields, and the present study findings described in this report.

Key Areas

• PCR (Participants, n=614): Disclosures by experienced PCR end-users on their top three consumables in terms of costs, in the PCR field; end-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current and future (2012 - 2015) annual budgets in percentage terms across eight general areas, including consumables, in the PCR field.

• DNA Microarray (Participants, n=201): Disclosures by experienced DNA microarray end-users on their top three consumables in terms of costs, in the DNA microarray field; End-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current and future (2012 - 2015) annual budgets in percentage terms across eight general areas, including consumables, in the DNA microarray field.

• DNA Sequencing (Participants, n=108): Disclosures by experienced DNA sequencers on their top three consumables in terms of costs, in the DNA sequencing field; end-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current and future (2012 - 2015) annual budgets in percentage terms across eight general areas, including consumables, in the DNA sequencing field.

• Flow Cytometry (Participants, n=262): Disclosures by experienced flow cytometry end-users on their top two reagents and consumables in terms of costs, in the flow cytometry field; end-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current annual budgets in percentage terms across nine general areas, including reagents and consumables, in the flow cytometry field.

• Mass Spectrometry (Participants, n=567): Disclosures by experienced mass spectrometry end-users on their top three consumables in terms of costs, in the mass spectrometry; End-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current annual budgets in percentage terms across four general areas, including consumables, in the mass spectrometry field.

• Disease Biomarkers (Participants n=511): End-users' estimates of the breakdown of their current annual budgets in percentage terms across six general areas, including consumables, in the disease biomarker field.

• Participant Organisations: The names, countries and application areas of participant organisations

• Organisation Growth Trends: Organisations' reported plans in terms of growth in the area to which the software and databases relate (i.e. decline in activities, activities remain the same or increase in activities).
