Imaging Flow Cytometer combines the speed, sensitivity, and phenotyping abilities of flow cytometry with the detailed imagery and functional insights of microscopy. This unique combination enables a broad range of applications that would be impossible using either technique alone.
Government of developed and developing countries is spending high on drug discovery. Increasing number of clinical trials each year and rapid advancements in electronic devices for cellular analysis are major factors expected to drive the growth of global image-based cytometer market. More than 18,000 clinical trials are actively recruiting patients in the U.S. As of February 1, 2021, there were around 366 thousand clinical studies registered globally. The number of clinical studies has increased significantly since there were just 2,119 registered in 2000. With the chancing healthcare landscape development in laboratory devices is gaining traction. Increasing number of patients suffering from chronic diseases and focus towards minimizing the turn-around time on test samples. Flow cytometers can be used to study viruses and viral particles due to the high sensitivity of time-delayed integration (TDI) and CCD camera technology. Rising pandemic effect across the globe, high investment by the government for vaccine development and increasing use of imaging flow cytometer for R&D activities are factors expected to augment the growth of image-based cytometer market. Imaging flow cytometer provides high performance in a small package. Its design increases signal and minimizes noise to provide unmatched fluorescence sensitivity. Major players are investing high for product development their approach towards enhancing the customer base is expected to boost the image-based cytometer market growth.
In 2021, Beckman Coulter Life Sciences, a global medical devices manufacturer launched “CytoFLEX SRT Benchtop Cell Sorter”. The product launch is expected to help the company to enhance the business and increase the product offerings.
In 2016, Nexcelom Bioscience, a leading provider of cell counting and analysis products for biomedical research and the biopharma industry launched “Celigo image cytometer”. The product is a benchtop image cytometry system providing whole-well imaging and quantitative data, through image analysis for demanding cell-based analytical applications. This product launched helped the company to enhance the business and increase the revenue share.
