Oxidative stress assay is used to determine level of oxidative stress markers and reagents in cells. Applications of oxidative stress assay are research laboratories and bioproduction. Assays detect generalized oxidative stress, reactive oxygen species (ROS), lipid peroxidation, fluorescent proteinbased redox sensors, and glutathione levels. The detection of glutathione, measurement of ratio of reduced glutathione to oxidized glutathione, and detection of changes in ROS to indicate cell health is also carried out using assays of oxidative stress. Superoxide dismutase, ascorbic acid, catalase, and glutathione are some of the antioxidants used to eliminate detrimental effects of oxidative stress.
Rapid growth and R&D investments in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries and government funding for life science research fuels the growth of the market. However, high cost of instruments and lack of skilled professions are factors hindering the growth of the market. On the other hand, technological advancements and emerging markets present opportunities for growth.
