HTStec's ‘Single Cell Technologies 2012’ report was published on 8 August 2012. This 50 page report summarizes the results of HTStec's industry-wide global web-based benchmarking survey on cell migration, motility or invasion assays carried out in July 2012. The questionnaire was compiled by HTStec to address the needs and interests of the cell migration assay vendor community. The main objectives of the study were to comprehensively document and understand current use of cell migration, motility or invasion assays. The survey also examined the application requirements, market opportunities, metrics, costs, unmet needs and demand for such assays. Equal emphasis was given to soliciting opinion from all areas and organisations were cell migration assays were being deployed. The report is based on 130 responses, from persons or groups undertaking cell migration assays and using or planning to use assay kits or related products.
