The Worldwide Microbiology Market (Traditional Microbiology, Microbiology/Infectious Disease Immunoassays, Molecular Microbiology, Mass Spectrometry in Microbiology)
Published: April 10, 2018 Content info: 282 Pages
Description

Clinical microbiology laboratories perform tests to detect, isolate, identify and characterize microorganisms that cause infectious diseases, and also perform antibiotic susceptibility tests. This is a diverse market. Traditional microbiology, including culture, microscopy, use of stains plus fluorogenic and chromogenic substrates, and other technologies has been used for several decades in microbiology laboratories. Microbiology tests may be performed using traditional microbiology techniques, or by using newer technologies including immunoassays, molecular microbiology (PCR or other nucleic acid amplification methods), or mass spectrometry. The Worldwide Microbiology Market provides analysis of the current global market, looking at the current and future market by segment, by pathogen/disease, by geographic region, and by major company market shares, including the following data points:

A wide range of technologies are used today to detect and characterize pathogens, or to detect the effect an infectious disease pathogen has on a patient's body. Selected technologies used for infectious disease diagnostics are discussed in the report, including:

  • Traditional Microbiology: Identification and antibiotic susceptibility/sensitivity testing (ID/AST), which includes the following product categories: microbial ID/AST systems, and panels and reagents for ID/AST systems; chromogenic media; rapid tests done on colonies selected from culture media; and blood culture bottles and systems
  • Mass Spectrometry: The development of MALDI-TOF mass spectrometers has made it possible to apply mass spectrometry to infectious disease diagnostics applications, and mass spectrometers are now being used in microbiology laboratories for rapid identification of pathogens following cell culture
  • Immunoassays: Those discussed include traditional rapid assays (flow through assays and immunolochromatographic tests) and enzyme immunoassays
  • Polymerase Chain Reaction and Other Nucleic Acid Amplification Technologies: Assays based on PCR and certain other nucleic acid amplification technologies are widely used in clinical laboratories, and are penetrating near patient and point-of-care settings

The Worldwide Microbiology Market also looks at advances in molecular microbiology. Until recently, sequencing applications in microbiology have been limited. This is starting to change. At this time, next generation sequencing based tests are mostly laboratory developed tests for oncology or genetic testing. However, companies are starting to apply next generation sequencing to infectious disease diagnostics. The report outlines selected companies applying DNA/RNA sequencing to microbiology.
