ARLINGTON, Va., June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- BioInformatics, LLC announces the pending release of its newest report, Exploring the Epigenetics Market: Opportunities for Product Placement and Innovations. Designed to provide guidance for life science suppliers selling products that support epigenetic research involving chromosome immunoprecipitation (chIP), this report will help suppliers optimize product offerings and strengthen market position. For this report, BioInformatics, LLC (http://www.gene2drug.com), the premier research and advisory firm serving the life science market, fielded a detailed 56-question survey to scientists worldwide about their current--and planned--areas of study in epigenetics research, usage of related products and preferred suppliers.
The report is scheduled to release in mid-July, and is available at pre-release pricing until July 15, 2009.
Advances enabling faster and cheaper mapping of epigenetic modifications have accelerated discoveries in the field. Since 2007, the National Institutes of Health has supported these efforts with the creation and funding of the Epigenomics Roadmap Initiative, which promotes the discovery of epigenetic markers and the development of new epigenetics-based tools. Exploring the Epigenetics Market: Opportunities for Product Placement and Innovations reviews progress in both of these areas and highlights opportunities for suppliers interested in designing and manufacturing new technologies to support epigenetics researchers. In this study, scientists elaborate on processes and techniques they use to do epigenetics research, problems with protocols and antibodies, changes expected in the time/effort devoted to epigenetics research over the next couple of years and the estimated change in spending on chIP consumables through 2011.
Scientists also provide opinions about suppliers of chIP and non-chIP grade antibodies, and indicate how these products are used, satisfaction with suppliers and desired improvements with each. The following suppliers were provided as choices in the survey:
Abcam (LSE: ABC.L)
Affinity Bioreagents (Thermo Fisher Scientific (NYSE: TMO))
Alexis Biochemicals (Enzo Life Sciences) (NYSE: ENZ)
Aviva Systems Biology
BD Biosciences Immunocytometry Systems

"While the majority of the survey respondents are involved in gene regulation studies, changes to the epigenetic state play a central role in many diseases. Cancer is one of the best-studied examples, but many other pathologies, including diabetes, neurological disorders, and aging may have epigenetic contributions," states Tamara Zemlo, Ph.D., MPH, Vice President of Advisory Services. Dr. Zemlo has been the senior analyst on over 80 syndicated market research reports, and presented findings from Exploring the Epigenetics Market: Opportunities for Product Placement and Innovations at the 2009 Consumer Genetics Show at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston, MA on June 9.
