Flow cytometry is a biophysical, laser based analytical technology that measures and analyses several physical characteristics of cells or particles suspended in a fluid, when passed through a laser beam. Flow cytometry has various advantages over traditional analytical methods such as ELISA, which include its ability to deliver precise and accurate results and lesser time consumption at about same prices. The flow cytometry technology is widely used in the various fields of academic and clinical research, and diagnosis of diseases such as cancer, HIV and hematological malignancies. Rising count of patients suffering from HIV and cancer and increasing use of flow cytometry in hospitals and diagnostic centers, has created an impending need of flow cytometry in the effective diagnosis and monitoring of diseases.
World flow cytometry market is set to grow at a remarkable pace in the coming years, attributed to technological advancements and high adoption in various research and diagnostic applications. In addition, the advent of flow cytometry technology in novel research applications such as cytogenomics, proteomics and marine biology would further supplement the market growth. Further, rising incidence rates of diseases such as cancer and HIV are likely to boost the adoption of flow cytometry technology across diagnostic applications.
