Global Electron Microscopy Sample Preparation Market 2017-2021
About Electron Microscopy Sample Preparation
Electron microscopy sample preparation involves various procedures employed to treat a sample to prevent degeneration and preserve the microscopic structure of the sample. Sample preparation is a vital step in analytical chemistry. Certain substances in samples may interfere with proper chemical analysis. They need to be treated before these samples can be observed under an analytical device or undergo further processes. Electron microscopes are used to visualize biological samples clearly and in finer details as they obtain images and make nanoscale detections.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global electron microscopy sample preparation market to grow at a CAGR of 8.96% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global electron microscopy sample preparation market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the retail sales of equipment used for sample preparation sold to various end-users discussed in this report.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Electron Microscopy Sample Preparation Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global electron microscopy sample preparation market: Danaher, Hitachi High-Technologies, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and JEOL.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Carl Zeiss, Gatan, and SCIENION.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing industry-academia collaboration for research. The trend of partnerships and collaborations is growing in the market as key players in the industry look to partner with universities to better understand the applications of electron microscopy in various applications such as innovations in solar cell, development of new nanomaterials, semiconductor manufacturing, biological science, and medical technologies.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is automated sample preparation systems creating high demand. Manual sample preparation has long been the industry standard technique for preparing samples before analyzing them. However, this is not an efficient method as it is time-consuming and could lead to errors in lab results. Therefore, to meet compressed research project deadlines and allocate more time for other processes, an automated sample preparation system is needed. Furthermore, automation increases the throughput and consistency of preparing samples for protein analysis, genetic sequencing, and other methods of data collection.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high cost of equipment. Sample preparation for electron microscopy requires highly specified procedures that need extreme care not to disrupt the sample, which increases the overall cost of these systems. As biological samples are non-conductive, they cause charging problems in the SEM. The majority of electrons from the electron beam remain in the sample and form clusters of negative charges. This built-up negative charge interferes with the primary beam and results in image distortions and loss of contrast collectively referred to as ‘charging effect’.
