High throughput screening (HTS) is a drug discovery technique employed for screening and evaluation of large number of biological modulators and effectors against selected target. Over last two decade, high throughput screening has gained a widespread popularity and has become a standard method of drug discovery in the pharmaceutical industry. The prime goal of high throughput screening technique is to accelerate drug discovery process by screening large number of compound libraries such as combinatorial chemistry, genomics, protein, and peptide libraries at a rate that may exceed a few thousand compounds per day or week. High-throughput screening methods are also used to characterize metabolic, pharmacokinetic and toxicological data for new drugs and thereby eventually reducing the cost of the drug development. High throughput screening comprises of several steps such as target identification, reagent preparation, compound management, assay development and high-throughput library screening.
Technological advancements such as automation of liquid handling, creation of novel technological platforms, and development of analytical tools to deal with massive quantities of data has exponentially driven the global High Throughput Screening Devices Market in past few years. Increasing competition among pharma companies with respect to pioneering drug discovery and commercialization demand for high throughput screening devices is increasing at a rapid pace. HTS market promises affirmative growth potential in near future due to its inevitable use in the research and production field.
Some of the technological advances in the HTS industry attribute to introduction of high content screening technologies, robotic automation, miniaturization of the HTS technological platforms and novel cell culture approaches. High throughput screening market by technology can be sub-segmented into four major categories: cell based assays, ultra high throughput screening (UTHS), lab-on-a-chip (Loac), label free technology and bioinformatics. Key application areas of high throughput screening devices include target identification, primary screening, toxicology and stem cells. Moreover market by end users can be further sub-segmented into pharmaceutical sector, biotechnology sector, contract research organizations, environmental laboratories and academic institutes.
