2003/2004 US MSPPSA report on Proteomics Research, Volume One
204 pages, 140+ graphs and tables
Published: February 5, 2003
The Reality of Proteomics Research in the U.S. - Cut Through the Hype and Hearsay with a Fresh Look at Mass Spectrometry & Protein Microarrays
A new report by PhorTech International cuts through the hearsay
and prognostications that have alternatively hyped and denigrated this nascent
market sector. Based upon measured, primary market research techniques and
painstaking analysis, this report shows the actual extent to which proteomics
research is carried out today. Projections of future growth are based upon
current users and those who plan to begin working in this field within the near
future. There are now 19,020
Proteomics addresses a wide range of objectives, as shown in the chart above. The majority of current users have multiple objectives, with the identification of specific proteins the most commonly cited.
The report studies in great detail the preparation of samples for proteomics research. We begin with the total amount of starting material, shown in the chart above, and look at required detection limits, the types of samples isolated, the abundant and irrelevant components that need to be depleted from samples, and the classes of proteins that are desired to be enriched.
In addition, we examine the source and origin of samples to be studied.
We can see in the previous chart that, while human source material is the most commonly used, a wide variety of additional sources make up the majority of samples analyzed. In the following chart, we compare the source and origin of samples that respondents plan to study in the near future.
The report also examines the principal analytical platforms used for proteomics research.
As mentioned earlier, the analysis of the proteomics market is covered in two volumes. Volume One concentrates on the preparation of samples and 2-D electrophoresis, while Volume Two, currently in production and shortly to be released, focuses on mass spectrometry and the use of protein microarrays. In the following chart, we examine the numbers of proteins analyzed simultaneously using broad or narrow pH gradients.
Hundreds of verbatim comments are presented and analyzed, providing readers of this report with a wealth of direct feedback regarding the methods for deleting unwanted components, suppliers used to purify samples, suppliers of analytical platforms used for proteomics, and more. Nimble suppliers can use this insight to gain sustainable competitive advantage over their flat-footed competition.
This report is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and realistic
assessment of the current market for proteomics research in the
