Rise in High-Throughput Screening Procedures to Boost the Market for Microplate Washers
A microplate is a flat plate that has various wells on it. These wells serve as tiny test tubes in clinical and analytical diagnostic testing laboratories. Microplate washers are instruments used in laboratories, which are designed to control the washing of experimental samples that are arranged in plate-based formats. Microplate washers are extensively used for a wide variety of experimental assays that require a series of washes. Microplate washers are also used to wash protein arrays, cell cultures and Western Blot beads as well as used in DNA purification procedures. Microplate washers improve efficiency by increasing the accuracy and speed of washing for various procedures such as ELISA, vacuum-filtration assays, bio-magnetic separation, microsphere-based assays, etc. Microplate washers are easily incorporated in robotic liquid handling systems and workstations. Microplate washers are available in various configurations in the market; from hand-held microplate washers to fully automated microplate washers. Microplate washers are required in high-throughput laboratories for better and efficient workflow.
Microplate Washer Market: Drivers
With the growing healthcare infrastructure, there is an increase in the demand for microplate washers as they are required in life science industries, pharmaceutical industries, in-vitro diagnostic industries, etc. The low cost of microplate washers and the expansion of these industries are among factors expected to drive the microplate washers market during the forecast period. Moreover, a consistent increase in the need for high-throughput screening and growing in vitro and other diagnostic-related research is also expected to boost the microplate washers market. However, these microplate washers need maintenance, which is likely to restrain the growth of the microplate washers market during the forecast period. Lack of popularity and traditional practices for washing microplates are also likely to hamper the growth of the microplate washers market during the forecast period.
