Cell counting is the fundamental quality control procedure in research. As it is a straight forward procedure it also contains error-prone, time-consuming, and highly subjective. Through smart microbial cell counters there occur fewer chances of errors while counting.
As the smart microbial cell counters are equipped with high quality optics and sophisticated software that brings cell concentration and viability data with incredible speed, accuracy, and reliability. Smart microbial cell counter instruments are witnessing tremendous growth involved in various research activities such as cancer biology, immunology, and neuroscience, and others. This offers lucrative growth opportunities for the smart microbial cell counters market globally.
Technological advancements acts as a burgeoning factors for the ultimate growth of global smart microbial cell counters market
With technological support, it has upsurge the development of enhanced solutions that enhance the improved image analysis by introducing new product range in the global smart microbial cell counter market. With growing focus on both inter-and intra-lab reproducibility in research, companies are now focusing on getting accurate cell counts when compared with traditional methods. The newly developed technology is highly dependent on automated cell counters by image guided technology. For instance, Logos Bio-systems image based automated cell counters provides accurate and reliable cell count. Moreover, the advanced de-clustering algorithms distinguish single cells in cluster or clumps. The company's cell counter produces accurate and reproducible cell count results with great linearity and low technical variability.
Detection of chronic disease bolsters the demand for smart microbial cell counter market
As there is high prevalence of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and cancer, in several countries such as China and India started adoption of advanced technology supported by smart/automated microbial cell counter. As per the American Chemical Society, cancer cells escape from tumors into the bloodstream and seed new tumors elsewhere in the body of patients. This acts troublesome as travelling cells are hard to trace as they make up from few to billions cells in the bloodstream. Currently, researchers have developed a simple method that can count cancer cells in patients’ blood in couple of hours and with a little sample preparation. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), approved one method of counting circulating tumor cells, but it requires extensive sample preparation. In non-clinical settings, scientists use flow cytometry to count cells, but this analysis take about one day.
Research studies fuel the demand for smart microbial cell counters
Cell counting instruments are widely being adopted in several areas of research involving cancer biology, immunology, and neuroscience, that records lucrative growth opportunity for the smart microbial cell counter market globally. The market will also record significant CAGR as blood cell counting is acts as an imperative tool for various diseases, and its adoption propels the growth of the overall market.
