Cell based assay refer to a technique of analysis of living cell on the basis of different parameters. Cell based assays are used to measure virtually of cellular or biochemical functions. In cell based assays, functional cells are used as diagnostic tools in research for new drugs. Cell based assays are used by pharmaceutical companies, academic research institutes, biotechnology companies, government institutions, contract research organizations and others. Cell based assays help to measure cell proliferations, motility, toxicity, production of a measurable product and morphology in diagnostics and drug discovery. Cell based assays facilitate research in the area of stem cells, cancer, immunology and others. On the basis of application, cell based assay market can be classified into drug discovery, predictive toxicology, basic research, ADME studies and others.
North America, followed by Europe, has the largest market for cell based assays due to increasing drug related research, development activities, rise in adoption of cell based assay platforms and large number of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in this region. Asia is expected to show high growth rate in the cell based assays market in next few years due to technological advancement, rise in investments in R&D includes life science research and drug discover outsourcing in the region.
