Flow cytometry is a commonly used technique to count and examine cells. With a range of applications in diagnosis of cancer, immunology and disease research, flow cytometers are widely used by scientists in academia and industry. Flow cytometry represents a key growth area in the life sciences industry as life science suppliers continue improving products and services in this market.
In order to dive more deeply into the characteristics and dynamics of the market for flow cytometry, Percepta has introduced the Flow Cytometry Dashboard™, designed to take a snapshot of the current market landscape with the future goal of repeating and publishing the study to give Dashboard readers the ongoing story of how the market is adapting to new products, new competitors and sales and marketing strategies.
The Flow Cytometry Dashboard™ was developed from responses to a 32-question survey completed by 368 scientists predominantly located in North America and Europe. This Dashboard reveals key market indicators for the flow cytometry market as a whole.
This report is focused on the use of flow cytometry in life science research.
Respondents from the academic, government and commercial market segments are well represented, with 23.0% of respondents employed in an industry setting and 75.2% of respondents employed in academic setting. 68.3% of respondents are from North America, while 30.1% reside in Europe and 1.6% reside in the rest of the world.
Junior (Lab Tech, Grad Students), mid-level (Post-Doc, Lab Manager) and senior (Professor/PI, Group Leader) scientists are well represented in the data set, with the most cited job titles being Scientist/Senior Scientist (21.2% of respondents) and Professor / Principal Investigator (17.9%).
A wide variety of scientific areas of specialization is also evident, led by Immunology (named by 35.8% of respondents as their primary or secondary area of expertise) and Molecular Biology (named by 30.7% of respondents). Cell Biology (29.9%) and Oncology Research (18.5%) are the only other applications named by more than 15% of respondents.
Small (1-5 scientists), medium (6-20 scientists) and large (>20 scientists) laboratories are well represented: 30.9% of respondents work in labs where 1 to 5 people perform experiments; 53.0% in labs with 6 to 20 experimenters, and the remaining 16.0% in labs with greater than 20 bench scientists.
44.3% of respondents indicated that 1 to 3 people in their laboratories perform flow cytometry experiments at least a few times each year. An additional 23.6% of survey participants revealed that 4 or 5 individuals perform flow cytometry experiments in their labs at least a few times each year. 12.2% of respondents work in labs where greater than 10 people perform flow cytometry experiments at least a few times each year.
