Companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are overcoming challenges pertaining to enhancement of catalytic activity and stability with the help of the enzyme immobilization technique. The enzyme immobilization technique is one of the most cost-efficient ways of enhancing specific properties in horseradish peroxidase. Moreover, this technique is being highly publicized to minimize the enzyme inhibition effects of horseradish peroxidase.

ELISA Substrate Selection Determines End Results in Assay Systems

Manufacturers in the horseradish peroxidase market are gaining proficiency to develop enzymes with a range of sensitivities that play an instrumental role in different detection methods. They are increasing awareness about careful selection of ELISA substrates in order to obtain best results in assay systems. As such, ELISA substrates differ in price, ease-of-use, and sensitivity. Hence, researchers must opt for a variety of procedures to bring ELISA substrates in the working condition. The preparation of substrates plays a key role in detecting signals in assay systems. However, companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are increasing efforts to boost the availability of substrates that are in ready-to-use forms.

There is a growing awareness about various optimization methods for ELISA substrates, which help to deliver better results in assay systems. Manufacturers are increasing their production capabilities to develop chromogenic substrates for ELISA, which are used in combination with horseradish peroxidase enzyme (HRP).

Strategic Acquisitions Help Leverage Opportunities in Sample Preparation Technologies

The horseradish peroxidase market is predicted to surpass the value of US$ 100 Mn by 2030. This is an important revelation, since companies are securing stakes of other companies even amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. For instance, in March 2020, Thermo Fisher Scientific- a U.S. provisioner of reagents, consumables, and scientific instrumentation, announced the acquisition of QIAGEN— a provider of sample and assay technologies for molecular diagnostics to explore opportunities in sample preparation technologies.

In order to achieve increased sensitivity, the technique of chemifluorescence is being used for ELISA reactions. Thus, companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are becoming increasingly aware about this technique and has helped to increase the magnitude of sensitivity in ELISA reactions. They are using photomultiplier tubes with fluorescence detection in order to achieve stability in reactions.

Recombinant Protein Production Accelerates Enzyme Preparation

Apart from blotting and assay systems, horseradish peroxidase is being used for wastewater treatment and as a reagent in organic synthesis. Since horseradish peroxidase is extracted from armoracia rusticana roots, seasonal availability and long cultivation times pose as hurdles for manufacturers. Hence, manufacturers in the horseradish peroxidase market should aim for uniform enzyme preparation with the help of saccharomyces cerevisiae or pichia pastoris, as host organisms for recombinant protein production since yeasts are easy to cultivate.

Horseradish peroxidase holds promising potentials in therapeutic use, owing to its stability at specific temperatures. As such, companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are increasing their focus in medical applications. They are increasing their R&D activities to innovate in non-glycosylated recombinant horseradish peroxidase with the help of site-directed mutagenesis of amino acids.

ABTS Reagents Mimic Properties of TMB in Prolonged Reaction Time Durations

ABTS is being highly publicized as a safe and sensitive substrate for horseradish peroxidase-based ELISA systems. Hence, companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are increasing the availability of ABTS reagents. For instance, Merck- a U.S. multinational pharmaceutical company has a wide range of product portfolio in blue green color ABTS single reagents that enhance enzymatic activities. Improved versions of ABTS mimic the properties of TMB if a reaction is allowed to progress for prolonged periods.

Companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are increasing their production capabilities to develop room-temperature stable single component ABTS reagents that are being pervasively used in ELISA procedures. Thus, researchers are opting for non-organic formulations for horseradish peroxidase detection systems. Manufacturers are developing ABTS reagents that are largely optimized for ELISA assays in microwell plates or test tubes.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Companies in the horseradish peroxidase market are collaborating with researchers and scientists to deploy advanced developments in COVID-19 vaccines. Apart from therapeutic use, companies can broaden their revenue streams in textile applications.

However, in some cases, it can be potentially challenging to optimize ELISA protocols with sensitive substrates, owing to issues of blocking or non-specific binding that are detectable. Hence, companies should educate researchers about the various criteria for choosing ELISA substrates that are capable of working slightly below the limits of detection. Stable and highly fluorescent substrates are an increasing trend in the market, and are helping to acquire better results in ELISA reactions.
