Biodetection Market Outlook – Increasing Cross-border Wars Leading to Growing Concern About Bio-contaminants
Regulatory policies and safety standards govern global biodetection market growth. Geographically, Europe and North America are the major revenue contributors to the global biodetection market, as these regions make major investments in bio-surveillance systems and ensure implementation of highly efficient technologies and systems. On the other hand, Asia Pacific and Rest of the World provides lucrative opportunities for biodetection systems, as the governments in these regions are trying to prevent bio attacks and implement effective methods for minimizing damage caused by these attacks.

Bioanalyses, chemical analyses, contract research, DNA-based assays, and consultancy services are some of the biodetection services offered by market players. Biological analyses includes determining the contaminants and quantification of the same, along with identification of biological effects due to a range of compound classes and mixtures. Furthermore, these assays also assist in identification of the compounds imposing positive health effects such as inhibition and activation of cellular pathways. Contaminant detection is based on detection of biological effect or chemical analysis, and the services include the detection of contaminants in defense, food and environment settings, and clinical.
DNA-based analyses are highly sensitive and validate the presence or absence of a specific species in a sample and assess the presence or absence of specific type of genes in a genome. These analyses are carried out by employing gene sequencing processes along with other molecular diagnostic techniques. Chemical analyses aid in detection and determination of complex mixture of bioactive compounds present in sample (clinical, food or environmental origin). These analyses involve the implementation of several chemical analytical fractionation techniques such as solid phase extraction (SPE), high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), and gel permeation chromatography. Laboratories involved in offering these services are as per the approved calibration standards and respective government guidelines.

Steady rise in use of biological agents and weapons along with increased awareness of bioterrorism and biological warfare, is fueling demand for biodetection, especially in Asia Pacific and Middle East regions. Biodetection technologies and medications against potential biological agents and extensive support from governments across the globe is projected to further propel growth of biodetection market. On the contrary, challenges in identification of minute pathogens and increasing misuse of scientific technologies along with increasing circulation of harmful biological weapons and agents would impede biodetection market growth. Some of the companies operating in the global biodetection market include Agilent Technologies, Smiths Group plc, Cepheid, Inc., Roche Diagnostics, Dycor Technologies, Ltd., and BioDetection Systems B.V.
