Reporter gene assays (RGA) are sensitive and versatile methods used extensively to study regulatory sequences, gene expression, signaling pathways and transcriptional activity, among other applications. Reporter gene assays are widely used by scientists in both, industry and academia. As life science suppliers continue improving products and services in the reporter gene assays market, reporter gene assay kits and reagents represent a significant market within the life sciences industry.

In order to explore the characteristics and dynamics of the market for reporter gene assays in depth, Percepta has launched the first in the series of Reporter Gene Assays Dashboard™ for the North American and European markets.  This 2013 Dashboard provides a snapshot of the current reporter gene assays market landscape, to establish a foundation of data to which future series of Life Science Dashboards can be compared, giving Dashboard readers the ongoing story of how the market is adapting to new products, new competitors and sales and marketing strategies.

The 2013 Reporter Gene Assays Dashboard™ was developed from responses to a 27-question survey completed by 433 scientists located in North America and Europe. This Dashboard reveals key market indicators for the reporter gene assays market as a whole as well as for the following techniques representing market sub-segments:

  • Beta-galactosidase (LacZ) assays
  • Chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) assays
  • Fluorescent protein related assays, e.g. GFP, YFP, etc.
  • Luciferase assays
  • Other reporter gene assays, e.g. beta-glucuronidase (GUS), secreted alkaline phosphatase (SEAP), human growth hormone (HGH) reporter assays, beta-lactamase, etc.

Note: Some of the reagents listed above are also used for applications such as determining cell viability and ADME-Tox testing. However, these are unrelated to reporter gene assays and are not included in market size and growth rate calculations in this report.

Survey Methodology

In June of 2013, Percepta fielded the Reporter Gene Assays Survey to a subset of the company’s panel of life scientists. Individuals were invited by e-mail blast to click through to a webpage at where the survey was hosted. Invitations were delivered on June 5, 2013 and results collected through June 13, 2013.  A total of 433 scientists completed the survey. Results are based on the aggregate of collected responses.
