The World Market for Immunoassays

NEW YORK, April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

The World Market for Immunoassays

http://www.reportlinker.com/p02076275/The-World-Market-for-Immunoassays.html

The immunoassay market is large and long-established, but at the same time highly competitive. Kalorama Information's newly published report, The World Market for Immunoassays, describes the opportunities that exist for large IVD companies adopting new strategies and for new entrants to take market share.

Immunoassays have been used in clinical laboratory medicine since the 1960s, and are indispensable tools in clinical diagnostics. A wide range of types of immunoassays are now used to measure proteins (including antibodies), hormones, drugs, and other analytes. Fully automated immunoassay systems are now found in clinical laboratories. Even though the field of immunoassays is now mature, companies have continued to develop new immunoassays and immunoassay instrument platforms to further improve the sensitivity of the assays, to make multiplexing possible, to miniaturize the platforms for point-of-care, and to identify and develop assays for novel biomarkers, thus further expanding the potential of immunoassays for the future.

As part of its analysis the report provides:

Trends and innovations, including miniaturization and multiplexed assays
