Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/11/2017 -- Protein detection and quantification is a process which involves extraction, purification, labelling, and analysis of protein components. Protein detection and quantification is important before processing protein samples for separation and analysis of proteins by electrophoretic, chromatographic, and immunochemical techniques. The process of protein detection and quantification differs with respect to the amount and purity of protein and the accuracy required to detect and quantify it. Protein-copper chelation and secondary detection of the reduced copper and protein-dye binding, and direct detection of the color change associated with the bound dye are some examples of protein detection and quantification techniques.

The process of protein detection and quantification was first discovered in the 1950s with eminent physicists and chemists venturing into the field of biology to apply their techniques of detecting and analyzing the performances of proteins. The Bradford protein detection and quantification technique was the stepping stone toward developing more native solutions in analyzing proteins. The technique found out that the usage of detergents can keep the proteins in a state of solubility.
Increase in government funding to set up R&D centres for detecting and quantifying the performance of proteins is expected to play a critical role in driving the global protein detection and quantification market during the forecast period. Furthermore, rise in complex diseases has led to an increase in the need to study chronic diseases at the molecular level in order to detect their root cause, and also to find a solution to eliminate these diseases by producing suitable antigens.
The possibilities of flaws in the methods to detect and quantify proteins is a key drawback which is likely to restrain the global protein detection and quantification market during the forecast period. Moreover, the process of purification and analysis of proteins during the detection and quantification process might lead to low level crossover contamination of the proteins.
