With an Expected Decline to Low Single Digit Growth across Various Reporter Gene Assay Segments, Luciferase Assay Demand Remains Strong

Carlsbad, Calif. – August 30, 2013: Percepta Associates announces the launch of its Reporter Gene Assays Life Science Dashboard™ market research report revealing Life Technologies (including Invitrogen brand), Promega, Sigma Aldrich, Clontech, Thermo Fisher (including Pierce brand), Roche Applied Sciences and Invivogen as leading suppliers across various segments.  Market segments analyzed in this report include: beta-galactosidase (LacZ) assays, chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) assays, fluorescent protein related assays, e.g. GFP, YFP, etc., luciferase assays and other reporter gene assays, e.g. beta-glucuronidase (GUS), secreted alkaline phosphatase (SEAP), human growth hormone (HGH) reporter assays, beta-lactamase, etc.

With a significant percentage of high volume users, highest projected growth and highest monthly spend per laboratory the luciferase assay market is attractive with reasonable potential for additional growth. “Though some researchers indicate their projects have ended or are winding down, the number of researchers projecting growth in luciferase assays outnumber decliners by 2:1”, said Sarab Khandpur, Associate Consultant and Editor of the Life Science Dashboard™ publications. “This 2013 Reporter Gene Assays Life Science DashboardTM report provides a detailed analysis of end user practices and preferences for luciferase and other key reporter gene assay research segments.”
