The Global Microplate Instrumentation And Supplies Market is expected to grow from USD 1.1 billion in 2018 to USD 2.6 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 11.2%. The major drivers for the growth are the growing demand for omics-based drug discovery and development research; the increasing need for R&D labs to comply with regulations such as EU REACH regulation; and rising investments by pharmaceutical companies into developing niche drugs for rare diseases.
Microplate Instrumentation And Supplies are devices, instruments, or equipment used in microplates. They include readers, washers & accessories, liquid handling systems like pipettes, robotic equipment for sample preparation as well as consumables such as plates and reagents. The term microplate is used to describe a small plate that has high-density microwells typically made from glass or plastic, where different substances can be placed for use in experiments and analyses.
Microplates are most often found in laboratories, hospitals, clinical diagnostic labs (laboratory tests), pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, biotechnology research facilities as well as other industrial sectors such as the medical devices industry. These provide platforms on which reactions take place under strict temperature control conditions while being measured precisely by analytical instruments.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Microplate Readers, Microplate Washers & Accessories, Liquid Handling & Robotic Equipment, and Microplates & Consumables.
Microplate readers are devices that measure the concentration of a chemical substance in a liquid or gas. This is done by measuring light intensity at different wavelengths, usually using an optical microspectrophotometer. The device typically has one or more LEDs and monochromatic filters to provide for wavelength selection; there may be additional components such as sample introduction optics including mirrors, phase plates, and diffraction gratings. One type of instrument used in laboratories for testing cell cultures contains concentric rings with wells inside them which hold small volumes (typically 0.001 mL) of fluids containing cells cultured from blood samples taken during surgery from cancer patients who still have some malignant tissue left behind following their initial treatment.
The Microplate Washers & Accessories segment is a subset of the Microplate Instrumentation and Supplies market. It includes microplate washers, adapters, holders for plates, racks for washing vessels as well as other related items such as filter funnels and liquid dispensers. The most commonly used supplies in this category are plate washers that use vacuum or water to rinse single-use polystyrene 96-well plates before they are reused with different samples after subsequent sterilization procedures (e.g., autoclaving). Plate washer accessories typically include washable bottle brushes designed specifically to remove stubborn debris from bottles attached to self-contained unitary systems, support shelves on which dishes can be placed while being cleaned by orbital shakers.
Liquid handling and robotic equipment is a type of microplate instrumentation. It includes the following: liquid transfer systems, pipettes, pumps (including peristaltic), sample handlers/shakers, vibratory cell manipulation devices for manipulating cells in culture plates or tubes; automated image analysis software to quantify cellular parameters such as cell size, nuclei number, total DNA content, etc.
Microplates & Consumables are consumable items that can be used with the microplate reader, and they include microplates. Microplates are flat sheets of plastic or glass that have wells in them for holding a specific volume of liquid. The size is usually specified by the number of rows (usually 12)×the number of columns (usually 24, 48, or 96).
The wells are small cylinders usually under 0.02 inches across and they can hold liquids such as blood plasma, urine, or other body fluids for diagnostic testing. They come with a lid to ensure that the liquid remains in place during shipping and storage. Microplates & Consumables include microplates that have been soaked in chemical reagents so they react specifically to particular substances found on the surface of cells lining human organs.
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into Spectrophotometry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Clinical Diagnostics, and Biotechnology.
Microplate Instrumentation and Supplies are used in spectrophotometry, which is a technique for measuring the properties of light. Microplates can be applied to chemical or physical processes where it is necessary to measure different segments of an experiment with greater precision than would otherwise be possible by using only one measurement at each segment.
The microplate reader provides automated control over sample preparation, data acquisition, analysis, and presentation. The need for automation arises from the fact that many instruments require several operator actions per minute either during manual operation (e.g., loading) or as part of routine maintenance procedures (e.g., cleaning). Automating these tasks reduces the number of times humans must touch-sensitive surfaces such as glass plates containing samples.
Microplate Instrumentation and Supplies are used in the pharmaceutical industry for the production of drugs. A microplate is a small glass or plastic container with wells that typically contain chemicals, enzymes, cells, etc. Microplates can be sealed to avoid contamination which makes them an ideal choice for use in laboratories. They have become popular as they offer excellent value when compared to other options like 96-well plates or 384 well plates (as more than half the space on each plate can be filled). The upside is that it’s possible to get results from smaller batches whereas before there was potential risk involved by performing experiments using large numbers of samples at once (including not being able to control factors such as temperature).
The use of microplate instrumentation and supplies in clinical diagnostics is a growing market as it enables medical practitioners to diagnose diseases like cancer, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis B & C with high accuracy through quicker testing times. Recent technological advancements have also led to the development of new and improved instruments that are more user-friendly than their predecessors such as robotic platforms for handling plates on an automated basis. Such advancements can help increase the productivity rates among technicians who rely heavily on manual labor which can lead to lower costs associated with running diagnostic laboratories.
The use of microplates in biotechnology is very common and growing. Microplate readers are used to analyzing a wide range of plate-based assays, including biochemical reactions, enzyme kinetics (such as Michaelis-Menten), binding assays, immunoassays such as ELISA or Western blotting, cell culture proliferation assay, and cytogenetic techniques. In addition, one of the major applications for microplates is biotechnology where they find extensive uses in areas such as genomic research and gene cloning. The process involves scientists extracting DNA from cells and sequencing it to identify the individual’s genetic makeup. This can help them determine if there are any abnormalities or mutations such as disease-causing genes which may lead to better treatments for conditions like leukemia and Parkinson's Disease.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Middle East & Africa. APAC is expected to witness high growth in this market during the forecast period because of the growing demand for biotechnology products in countries like China and India.
North America is anticipated to grow at a CAGR greater than that of any other region during the forecast period on account of increased R&D investments in this area by major players like Merck & Co., Inc. and Sigma-Aldrich Corporation among others along with its high adoption rates across various research institutes and hospitals owing to stringent regulatory guidelines imposed by government organizations such as FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or MHRA (Medicines Healthcare Regulatory Agency).
