The 2018 Global Security Market for Analytical Instrumentation

Although analytical instrumentation has long been utilized in forensic, safety, and security applications, it is fair to say that governments, military forces, first responders, transportation facilities, industrial facilities, and even the general public have increasingly turned to science and instrumentation as a way to identify and/or mitigate threats. In our latest report, The 2018 Global […]

Analytical Instruments for Security: ‘To Detect and to Protect’

One important trend in the analytical instrumentation industry is the continued migration of laboratory technologies into non-laboratory settings. As instruments become more robust, easier to use and smaller, they have escaped the lab into the field in many different applications from environmental testing to point-of-care diagnostics. One critical use for instruments in the field is […]

Roadmap for Success in the CRISPR/Cas9 Market

Rarely in the scientific realm does a niche technique explode into a viable market worth billions of dollars over just a handful of years. When it does, the chaos that ensues is driven by the scrambling of life science product and service providers who vie with each other to secure market share. The market for […]

Commercial Activity in the Multi-Billion Dollar CRISPR/Cas9 Market

Laboratories around the world are adopting the CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing technique for their research. Whether to engineer better cell lines for drug development or repair mutations that cause genetic diseases, researchers have only begun to tap into the tremendous potential that CRISPR/Cas9 promises. Consequently, the genome editing market, of which CRISPR/Cas9 already accounts for more […]

CRISPR/Cas9: A New Era in Genome Editing

In our most recent report we explore the market for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, or more popularly “CRISPR”, is a simple yet powerful genome editing technique that has recently taken the scientific community by storm. When coupled with the Cas9 protein, the technology allows for specific changes (addition, modification and deletions) to be […]

Microfluidics and and Omics Converging to Propel Single Cell Analysis Market

The study of cells has been instrumental in understanding biological processes. Research on genes and proteins expressed in specific types of cells has typically been performed on samples containing many cells, with analysis reflecting the data averaged across them. But over the last several years, studies have indicated differences in cells of the same type […]
