The U.S. biochip product market held majority share of the total biochip market in
2011, at over 70%. However, the U.S. biochip services market will grow faster than the
products market, due to increased opportunities of maintenance and technical support of
microarray devices owing to growth in their numbers and obsolescence of older machines.
The growth of this segment will also be spurred by the introduction of biochip consulting

        - The U.S. governments promotional initiative towards research of cancer
          treatment through genetics (e.g. The Human Genome Project, by the Department of
