The 2019 Market for Live Cell Imaging
Live cell imaging has grown significantly as a key application of life science research. The ability to better understand cellular processes and dynamics through imaging live cells has opened the door to new discoveries and improved research and development of therapeutics and vaccines. Typically conducted in early-stage R&D, live cell imaging utilizes imaging technologies which allow optimal environmental conditions for cell survival and growth in order to understand cellular process in native environments and their responses to pathogens, diseased states, or potential therapies.
The market for live cell imaging is dynamic, with optical, confocal, and high content analysis instrumentation forming a core of imaging technologies along with a robust consumables market including cell-based assays and labeling reagents. Additionally, more modern & advanced microscopy techniques such as multi-photon and light sheet microscopy are very well-suited for live cell imaging experiments due to the low phototoxicity of these techniques. This report covers key market dynamics, vendor participation and market share, opportunities and threats, and market segmentation by product type, region, end-user industry, and lab function.
