This Report

Immunoassays are biochemical test that measures the presence or concentration of an analyte by the use of antibodies. This technique is widely used in clinical and life science laboratories, in research, screening and routine tests in diagnostics and therapeutic monitoring. Immunoassay is also seeing new advances and its use continues to grow as new applications are developed. This report presents the findings of a new global study of immunoassay that profiled the laboratory use of this technique across research, life science and clinical sectors.

Biopharm Reports' specialised market studies are designed to assist suppliers and developers to profile current and evolving laboratory market opportunities. All of our studies are carried out through specialist groups of experienced end-users and therefore findings are based on 'real world' market data. By providing new insights and a better understanding of end-user practices, needs and future plans, our studies assist suppliers to sell into these markets, and also support innovation and strategic planning.

Market Size (Study Group)

As part of this study, end-users provided details of their immunoassy per-sample costs, together with the numbers of immunoassay runs they carry out on a monthly basis. These data allow an estimate of the annual market size corresponding to the running costs of immunoassay, associated with this group of 228 end-users. This is based on an average value of the per-sample costs and an average value for the number of sample runs per month. Purchasers of the Global License for this report are able to analyse these financial figures across all market sectors covered in this study.
