Cell analysis plays a major role in gene identification, protein identification, transcription analysis and epigenomics at cellular level.
It proves to be an ultra-sensitive device to elucidate specific molecular processes and pathways and reveal the nature of cell heterogenecity.
Hospitals, academic institutions, government bodies, as well as pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms are increasing their focus on application of cell analysis as a modern emerging tool in research, drug discovery and diagnosis.
The cell analysis techniques global market is segmented into molecular approaches, image-based approaches and others.
The molecular approaches include the PCR, NGS and Microfluidics, cell isolation & separation techniques performed at cells genomic level, where as the image-based approaches include microscopes, FISH, FRAP, tracking, high content screening (HCS), cytometry techniques etc.
