According to the study “Asia Biochemical Reagent Industry Situation and Prospects Research report”, biochemical reagents market is categorized based on types such as drug discovery, drug development, forensic studies, and disease diagnosis. The biochemical reagents products market is categorized into chromatography reagents, cell and tissue culture reagents, PCR reagent kits, electrophoresis reagents, flow cytometry reagent kits, and others. Biochemical reagents are used in contract research organizations, hospitals, clinical laboratories, forensic laboratories, research institutions and academic institutions. Asian countries are witnessing a drastic development in medical sector which is driving more alertness among patients, sophisticated medical infrastructure, and increased health care spending. The prominent players in the Asia biochemical reagents market are Thermo Fisher Scientific, Beckman Coulter, Abbott, Merck & Co., Inc., Life Technologies, Bio-Rad, Water Corporation, Sigma-Aldrich, Agilent Technologies Inc., Betcon Dickinson, Roche, AB Analitica, Gesan Production, Medicalsystem Biotechnology Co., Ltd., Promega, PZ CorAugust, SENTINEL CH., Teco Diagnostics and Dickinson & Company.
Asia’s biochemical reagents market is expected to grow drastically due its participation in the development of the future of laboratory medicine. A wide range of biochemical reagents are used to differentiation between bacteria, identification of specific metabolisms and identification of microorganisms. Most of the detection is based on how an enzyme reacts with a particular substrate. Therefore, complex building techniques or methods are practiced for detecting specific metabolites through chemical reaction. The biochemical reagents market in Asia is strengthened by medical biotechnology sector prospering due to early-phase diagnosis and treatment of diseases. It was observed that there is an increasing demand for mycoplasma kits and reagents, cell-viability kits and reagents, biological detergents, biological buffers, and biochemical reagents for antibiotics which predicts a significant growth in Asia’s biochemical reagents market over the next few years.
Biochemical reagents are usually the basic components of organisms extracted from an organism or chemically synthesized. With the continuing development in life sciences, biochemical reagents are categorized into a large class of chemical reagents with more than 10,000 kinds of commodities. Biochemical reagents are highly sensitive and are short shelf lived when they contact heat, moisture and light. Majority of the biochemical reagent enzymes cannot withstand high temperatures and are stored at 0 ~ 5 ℃, while some enzyme reagents used as genetic engineering are stored at -20 ℃. Biochemical reagents are divided into amino acids, peptides, proteins, nucleotides, nucleic acids, enzymes, coenzymes, carbohydrates, esters, and hormones. According to biological studies, biochemical reagents are divided into electrophoresis reagents, chromatography reagents, immunological reagents, labelling reagents, and organization chemical reagents. There are three methods to produce biochemical reagents; isolation and purification from organisms, chemical synthesis and fermentation. The major technical requirements for biochemical reagent products are content, melting point, freezing point, optical rotation, moisture, spectral characteristics, refractive index, density and bioactivity.
Biochemical reagents are also known as organic compounds or biological materials associated with clinical diagnostics, medical research reagents, and life science research. Most biochemical reagents are widely used in every sector of life sciences and healthcare industries resulting in rapid expansion of biochemical reagents market. The increasing R&D activities, increasing cancer cases, cardiovascular, neurological, infectious diseases, and medical awareness in patients are the major factors driving the development of more biochemical reagents. The biochemical reagents are used in treatment, diagnosis, monitoring of diseases and various disorders. Biochemical reagents are coupled with imaging and detection technologies for better results. Advanced technologies such as sequencing, polymerase chain sequencing and deoxyribonucleic acid biochips are also driving the market for biochemical reagents in Asia.
