Global Protein Crystallization and Crystallography Market 2017-2021

Global Protein Crystallization and Crystallography Market 2017-2021

About Protein Crystallization and Crystallography

Proteins are structurally dynamic. This is because they change their conformation or can be denaturized depending on the environment. Proteins are more stable as crystals than as solutions. Crystallization is the process of converting proteins into crystals. As proteins are static like crystals, they can be easily studied. The crystallization of proteins helps determine their original 3D structures. The most common crystallization methods are standard vapor diffusion, microbatch crystallization, microdialysis, and free interface diffusion. Protein crystal growth is affected by the potential of hydrogen (pH), ionic strength, temperature, and concentration of precipitant; concentration of macromolecule; and purity of macromolecules, additives, effectors, and ligands.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global protein crystallization and crystallography market to grow at a CAGR of 9.35% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Protein Crystallization and Crystallography Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global protein crystallization and crystallography market: Anatrace, Bruker, Formulatrix, Jena Bioscience, and Rigaku

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Anton Paar, Art Robbins Instruments, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Dynamic Devices, Fluidigm, GE Healthcare Life Sciences, Hampton Research, Merck, MiTeGen, Oxford Instruments, PerkinElmer, QIAGEN, Tecan Trading, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and WuXi AppTec.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Automation of liquid handling process. As protein crystallization requires the repetition of experimental steps to develop the correct and stable protein crystal, the automation of repeatable steps such as liquid handling is important. Automation improves throughput, decreases error within and between experiments, and generates a comprehensive report that can be reused for other experiments. Laboratory automation is extensively adopted by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies for applications such as diagnostics, structural biology analysis, clinical and analytical testing, and large-scale biorepositories. Robotic automation is beneficial for experiments that involve repetitive movements or processes such as mixing, heating, cooling, and the addition of other samples and solutions during the experiment. The automation of the sample handling process significantly reduces the chances of errors.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Emergence of advanced techniques. The emergence of technologically advanced products is improving protein analysis by revealing structural information about proteins. Innovations in incubation technologies and liquid handling mechanisms are reducing the process time. The emergence of techniques such as TFL, MFI, and cryo-EM has driven the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Lack of trained laboratory professionals. Protein crystallization and crystallography processes require the careful application of reagents and the handling of apparatus. The interpretation of results is increasingly important. Researchers must be aware of the appropriate analysis and correlation with the overall objective of the experiment. Before beginning protein crystallization, researchers must ensure the molecular weight of the protein, the buffer solution required for the experiment, and the stability of the protein. Hence, for a successful protein research experiment, the researcher must ensure multiple factors. Hence, trained laboratory professionals are required.
