Microplate Instrumentation & Supplies: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus) September 21, 2010
The market for microplate instrumentation & supplies is all set to realize healthy growth potential through 2015. Playing a pivotal role in laboratory automation, and simplification of research process, microplate has come to altogether replace conventional micro test tubes and cuvettes for running medium-to-high throughput assays. The increasing trend for miniaturization of laboratory processes is leading to a drastic cut in the requirement for expensive reagent sample size, thereby cutting costs, and improving throughput. In drug discovery research automation of routine laboratory tasks, microplate handling enables execution of round-the-clock processes, improves accuracy, and saves significant time for researchers, hence enabling them to focus on analysis. All this indicates expediting the time to market for new drugs.
Specific segments of the microplate readers market are expected to post significant growth over the next few years, driven by consistent technological advancements that provide higher throughput at lower costs. Major driving force is the increasing involvement of pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies into screening thousands of compounds. Burgeoning demand from drug discovery research and high throughput screening applications is driving stupendous growth in microplate instrumentation market. Drug discovery has emerged as a lucrative application market and is evolving rapidly, following innovative developments in automation, liquid handling and detection devices.
