Flow cytometry analyzes fluid by suspending fluid in the light beam or laser beam. Cell components in the fluid are fluorescently labeled and then they are passed through beam which later on excited by the laser to emit light at diversified wavelengths. The fluorescence lights help to determine various properties of single particles and cells from different wavelengths. Flow cytometer analyzes up to thousands of particles per second as the beam passes through the liquid stream. Flow cytometry includes several products and services such as reagents & consumables, flow cytometry instruments, software’s and services. Reagents & consumables are useful for the perfect run of the flow cytometry instruments. Several reagent kits are available in market for specified application of fluorescence tagged antibodies used in several fields in industries and researches. Reagents & consumables includes clinical diagnostic reagents, fluorescent dyes & labeling, immunochemical reagents, sourcing reagents and amongst others. Demand of flow cytometry in the diagnosis of systemic diseases has increased in past decades. Growing prevalence of chronic diseases such as cancer, immunological diseases such as HIV/AIDS, hematological diseases and amongst others driving the flow cytometry market growth. However competition from image analyzer & scanning cytometers and lack of awareness are some restraints in the market growth.
