Cell proliferation is the process of cell replication to increase the number of cells. Cell proliferation plays a vital role in cellular and tissue homeostasis for proper development, growth and maintenance of human beings. In case of few disease conditions, the cell proliferation rate is either increased or decreased. Hence, cell proliferation assays have become an integral part of the clinical diagnosis of various disease indications. Cell proliferation assays are used for investigational studies of cell activation, assessing cytotoxicity & clinically, as well as to test the effect of pharmacological interventions & growth factors on human cells. Thus, cell proliferation assays are used to measure cell count, the percentage change in cell proportion and division rate of the cell.
Cell proliferation assays are of three types: DNA synthesis cell proliferation assay, metabolic activity cell proliferation assay and an antigen associated with cell proliferation assay. DNA synthesis cell proliferation is the most commonly used assay because it provides the most accurate and reliable results. Metabolic cell proliferation assay is used to measure the metabolic activity of cell population. Tetrazolium salts are most commonly used indications for testing metabolic activity.
Cell Proliferation Assay Market: Drivers and Restraints
Rising demand for proliferation assays for the diagnosis of cancer is fuelling the growth of the cell proliferation assay market. In cancer diagnosis, cell proliferation assays are used to understand tumour aggressiveness and have become an integral part of tumour diagnosis. Along with this, the usage of cell proliferation assays for drug screening in case of pharmaceutical interventions has also increased the demand for proliferation assays for drug development. Moreover, advancements in technology have increased the reliability of cell proliferation assays with high accuracy in a timely manner. Traditionally, proliferation assays are time-consuming and associated with parallel errors. Recent advancements, such as immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry, flow cytometry and in-cell ELISAs, have led to the creation of advanced the cell proliferation assays that have replaced traditional proliferation assays. Moreover, rising cancer population and increasing research activities to gain a competitive edge are boosting the cell proliferation assay market. All these factors are expected to significantly propel the cell proliferation assay market over the forecast period. Also, the lack of alternatives assay methods for the understanding of cell proliferation is another factor fuelling the growth of the cell proliferation assay market.
Apart from DNA synthesis cell proliferation assay, other types of cell proliferation assays have limitations in clinical and research applications, which is restraining the overall growth of the cell proliferation assay market.
