That would be difficult to estimate.  Your best source I would think would
be the antibody companies, how much product do they sell in the US?  This
would vary from site to site.  Universities and research facilities do a lot
more than big city private hospitals, and outlying areas may do none at all.
I would ask some of the main players (DAKO, Ventana, Sigma, ETC.) about how
much product they sell in the USA.  What is this for?
