LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio’s latest report on the global electrophoresis reagents market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2017-2021. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.
The development of electrophoresis as a separation analysis technique has created a high throughput purification of macromolecules based on their charge and size, thus generating purified molecules. This has led to the increasing use of electrophoresis by pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, research organizations, hospitals, diagnostic centers, and academic institutions.
Amber Chourasia, a lead analyst from Technavio, specializing in research on health and wellness sector, says, "The rising prevalence and awareness of cancer have resulted in the increasing number of research studies for the diagnosis and effective treatment solutions for cancer. Capillary electrophoresis is gaining importance for the early diagnosis of cancer. Capillary electrophoresis is known for rapid and efficient separation of small samples, which makes it suitable for examination of both small and macromolecular biomarkers in complex samples."

Increasing popularity of personalized medicine
Personalized medicine is the customization of medical treatment to meet the individual need of each patient. Personalized medicine is a multi-faceted method to patient care that not only improves the capacity to diagnose and treat diseases but offers the potential to identify a disease at an earlier stage when it is easier to treat it effectively.
"Predictive diagnosis, a part of personalized medicine, is currently regarded as the basis for targeted preventive measures and for the development of individualized treatment approaches. Predictive diagnostics can also help in predicting human pathologies, and thereby develop a treatment timeline for the concerned individual," according to Amber.
Increasing use of electrophoresis in proteomics
Proteomics is used for several purposes such as proteome mining, protein expression profiling, structural and functional proteomics, and posttranslational modification studies. Proteomics is the large-scale study of protein features and functions. The goal of proteomic research is to obtain an integrated view of normal and abnormal cellular processes at the level of their essential proteins, for instance, in terms of protein abundance, protein-protein interactions, and their regulatory networks.
Proteomics is divided into two main subcategories, namely protein profiling, which is the identification of specific targets and markers, and functional proteomics, which is the identification of structure, interactions, and functions. Electrophoresis is used in protein profiling studies, as well as in functional proteomic research, where the modification of particular proteins is analyzed during alteration in growth conditions.
Adoption of laboratory automation
Due to cost cutting in laboratory fees, profitability per test is decreasing, which makes it essential for laboratories to focus on volume rather than value. There is also huge pressure for quality, error-free results. This compels laboratories to lean toward more automated systems with effective workflow solutions. In the US, laboratories are encouraged for automation due to the heavy influx of patients with insurance coverage.
Automation of the electrophoresis techniques in recent years has led to a rapid adoption of the techniques for various applications. Several studies have shown that electrophoresis techniques have enhanced health and research centers by providing a model for cancer research, screening of anti-cancerous drugs, effects of cytotoxicity, and others.
The key vendors are as follows:
