Overview

Introduction

Immunoassays are commonly used laboratory tests for identification and quantification of proteins. With a range of applications in diagnosis of cancer, immunology and disease research, immunoassays are widely used by scientists in academia and industry. As life science suppliers continue improving products and services in the immunoassays market, immunoassay kits and reagents represent a key growth area in the life sciences industry.

The 2013 Quantitative Immunoassay Dashboard™ was developed from responses to a 24-question survey completed by 553 scientists located in North America and Europe. This Dashboard reveals key market indicators for the Immunoassay market as a whole as well as for the following methods representing market sub-segments:

  • Colorimetric ELISA
  • Chemiluminescent ELISA
  • Fluorescent ELISA
  • Electrochemiluminescence Immunoassays
  • Bead-based Immunoassays

Percepta’s 2013 Quantitative Immunoassay Dashboard™ is the second in a series that characterizes the dynamic market for immunoassay methods. This 2013 Dashboard provides a snapshot of the current market landscape that is compared with data from the 2011 Quantitative Immunoassay Dashboard, providing an ongoing story of how the market is adapting to new products, new competitors and new sales and marketing strategies.

Survey Methodology

In October 2012, Percepta fielded an improved version of the Quantitative Immunoassay Survey to a subset of the company’s panel of more than 60,000 life scientists. Individuals were invited by e-mail blast to click through to a webpage at perceptabioanalytix.com where the survey was hosted. Invitations were delivered on October 30, 2012 and results collected through November 2, 2012. A total of 553 scientists completed the survey. Results based on the aggregate of collected responses are revealed in this Quantitative Immunoassay Dashboard.

Important Note: This report is focused on the use of immunoassays in the life science research market.

Respondent Demographics

Respondents from the academic, government and commercial market segments are well represented, with 63.8% of the respondents employed in an academic setting, 34.6% in an industrial setting and 1.8% of respondents work for government organizations. 71.4% of respondents are from North America, while 28.6% reside in Europe.

Junior (Lab Tech, Grad Students, Post-Doctoral Fellow), mid-level (Department Manager, Project Manager, Scientist, Core Manager, Professor, Instructor, Lab Manager) and senior (PI, Group Leader, Lab Director, Senior Scientist, CEO) scientists are well represented in the data set, with the most cited job titles being Principal Investigator (16.6% of respondents) and Post-Doctoral Fellow/Research Fellow (13.0%).

A wide variety of scientific areas of specialization is also evident, led by molecular biology (selected by 64.4% of respondents as their area of expertise), cell biology (57.3%) and biochemistry (45.4%). Immunology (38.3%), oncology (25.0%), microbiology/infectious disease/virology (24.4%), genetics (22.2%) and drug discovery (21.5%) are the only other areas of expertise selected by more than 20.0% of respondents.

Small (1 to 5 scientists), mid-size (6 to 10 scientists) and large laboratories (>10 scientists) are well represented in the respondent data set. A total of 41.0% of survey participants work in labs where one to five people perform experiments. 28.9% are employed in labs with six to ten scientists, while the remaining 30.0% of respondents work in labs where greater than 10 individuals work at the bench.
