Global Affinity Chromatography Reagents Market: Overview
Affinity chromatography, also known as bioselective adsorption, is a type of liquid chromatography for purification of a specific molecule or a group of molecules from complex mixtures. The fundamental principle comprising the method is the isolation of biomolecules on the basis of a reversible interaction between a target molecule (protein) and a specific bioligand that has been immobilized on an inert matrix. Examples of these interactions include the binding of a fusion protein with a ligand or binding of an antibody against a specific antigen. Affinity chromatography provides high selectivity, high resolution, and high capacity for analytical analysis of proteins. Affinity chromatography has a wide range of applications in academics, pharmaceuticals, food & beverage, hospitals, cosmetics, biotechnology, nutraceuticals and others.
Global Affinity Chromatography Reagents Market: Trends and Opportunities
The global affinity chromatography reagents are significantly growing under the influence of emerging biopharmaceuticals, biotechnology and food and beverages industries. High investment in research and development by life science companies, extensive academic and industry collaborations, increased governmental funding, innovation in purification technology, advancements in the design of columns, the development of better performing reagents and rise in acquisitions/partnerships among companies are some of major divers of affinity chromatography reagents market. Furthermore, factors such as increasing demand of green chromatography, escalating usage of chromatography reagents in antibody purification, protein synthesis and drug assessment are also triggering the growth of this market. However, the presence of other advanced analytical techniques such as electrophoresis, protein crystallization, and charged ultrafiltration membranes are the major road-block for the global expansion of affinity chromatography reagents market. In addition to these, high prices of solvents such as acetonitrile, dioxane and dimethylformamide, and issues related to degradation of solid support may also hamper the growth of this market to some extent.
Global Affinity Chromatography Reagents Market: Key Segments
