Microarray 2015 presents the findings of a new global study of microarray that profiled the laboratory use of this technique across research, life science and clinical sectors. This study, which evaluated end-users' current practices and three-year plans, investigated users own estimates of the growth in their use of this technique; the competitive positions of global instrument suppliers; microarray instruments used; research and clinical applications; consumables suppliers; microarray software; end-user's views on their future innovation and development needs in this field; sample preparation steps and methods; sample types analysed; main activities; disease areas; disease biomarkers; costs of sample analysis ; sample throughput per month and other areas.


Microarrays are technologies that are based on the surface attachment of thousands of nucleic acids, which are used to measure the relative concentration of nucleic acid sequences in a mixture, via hybridization and detection events. This technique has established a unique position in genetics-related studies, and supports important applications in research and the clinic. This technique has seen important advances in the last decade and its use continues to grow as requirements increase and new applications are developed.
