High Sensitivity and Specificity
Compared to conventional tests, immunoassays have been proven to provide highly accurate results even with very small samples. Immunoassays are considered to have a detection limit of 1pg/ml. This can be attributed to the fact that immunoassays are based entirely on immunologic reactions. Immunologic reactions are highly specific as they can take place only in the presence of proper immunologic agents. Immunoassays have a range of applications in pharmaceutical analysis such as diagnosis of disease, therapeutic drug monitoring, clinical pharmacokinetics and bioequivalence in drug discovery and pharmaceutical industries.
Additionally, cost effectives and rapid analysis by the immunoassays and growth in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors are also driving the growth of the Global Immunoassays Market.
Limitations Associated with Immunoassay
Immunoassays have shown high sensitivity and specificity. While this have advantages, there have been many limitations associated with the procedure. The limit of detection (LOD) for most of the immunoassays is limited primarily by the signal-to-noise ratio provided by the instrument that is used to detect antibody-antigen binding or by non-specific binding (NSB). Immunoassays are very complex to develop and manufacture and employs complex biomolecules such as antibodies, antigens and enzymes for the detection of the target molecules. Additionally, complex assay procedures are also acting as a restraint for the global immunoassays market.
North America to Dominate the Market
