The Global Microtomes, Cryostats Amp Automated Stainers Market size is forecast to grow from USD 1.6 billion in 2018 to USD 2.1 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 3.8%. This growth can be attributed mainly to the increasing number of OEMs and aftermarket microtome, cryostat, and automated stainers being introduced into the market. However, the high cost associated with these devices has been one of the key factors restraining their adoption in developing countries such as India and China where there are limited numbers of hospitals and laboratories that require them.
On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into Microtomes, Cryostats, Automated Stainers. Microtome is the largest segment of the Global Microtomes Cryostats amp Automated Stainers Market in 2018, accounting for nearly 53% share of total market size.
A microtome (or micromicrotome) is a device that usually consists of one or two hardened steel knife edges fixed to an armature, which are then sharpened. The desired thickness of the frozen tissue section can be determined by adjusting the distance between the arms. Once properly adjusted, these blades will produce slices approximately 0.05mm thick from hard tissues such as bone and wood without going through them because they cut parallel to their surface; while soft materials such as plant material may require slicing at much thinner intervals due to their higher flexibility.
Harder materials such as bone and wood may require thicker cuts due to their higher resistance to slicing; while softer materials like plants may produce thinner slices than animals because they have less structural rigidity. The size can be adjusted by changing the distance between two arms on which blades are fixed-once properly set up, these blades will cut parallel to the surface without going through it. Microtomes have been used since 1875 in histology for cutting very thin sections of animal or plant tissues for microscopic examination.
Microtomes come in many shapes and sizes:
-Some require a manual push, whereas others have automated blades that can cut at different speeds
-The blade size ranges from finely ground razor blades to thick steel rods with teeth on the end like a giant comb. The width of cuts also varies depending on what type you use (microscope slides need thicker sections)
The cryostat is a small, insulated container with a hollow metal rod through the middle of it. The liquid inside the container freezes due to contact with this cold rod and no further heat is transferred from any other part of the instrument. It's possible for impurities or air bubbles to get trapped near the cold end before freezing occurs, so some types have an automatic valve at one end which will close shut as soon as all parts start getting colder than -120°C (slightly warmer than absolute zero). These devices can be made out of metal or plastic. They work on refrigeration because ice is less dense than liquid water and so will float at a higher level when put into a container with regular water - this reduces its ability to absorb heat from the surrounding environment.
A typical cryostat will have one large pot containing the regular potable water surrounded by smaller pots filled with either crushed dry ice (solid CO) or chunks of frozen carbon dioxide (liquid CO). The lower density gas rises to the top of the pot and is cooled by contact with ice so that it sinks back down into the solution. This creates a continual cooling cycle for the liquid water in order to maintain its temperature below freezing. Some cryostats have circulators that move all parts of this liquid inside their tanks to ensure even distribution of heat throughout the solution - others will rely on gravity instead.
Automated Stainers can be defined as a device for staining biological tissues, cells, and other organic materials. This process is done with the help of automated equipment that generates multiple stains without any human intervention needed to maintain them.
Automated Stainers can be classified into five types: Automated Stainers-Tissue Processor, Automated Stainers-Cell Sorter, Automated Stainer With Programmable Computer Control System, Automatic Stainer Without Programmable Computer Control System And Other Types (e.g., Permanence Testing Machines).
On the basis of Application, the market is segmented into OEMs and Aftermarkets. The OEM segment is further subdivided into Commercial And Academic Research Labs, Hospitals & Clinics, and Other Institutions. OEMs are expected to dominate this market by 2028 end with more than 50%. The aftermarket segment accounted for only about 18% share due to the high replacement cost associated with these devices.
On the basis of Region, the market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. The Americas region is expected to hold the largest share of this market due to high adoption rates for these devices in hospitals and research laboratories across all countries in the region.
The Asia Pacific market is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market for these devices. High adoption rates of new technologies in countries such as China and India are likely to lead this region to grow at a high rate due to an increase in demand from research laboratories, hospitals, and other healthcare facilities. The Asia Pacific region is also forecasted to register higher growth potentials than the Middle East & Africa owing to increasing awareness about cancer risk factors across all regions coupled with improving health care infrastructure.
