Lab Automation Markets, 4th Edition (Systems [Sample Transport, Specimen Handling, Plate Readers, Storage & Retrieval, Robotics, LIMS], Key Companies, Forecasts and Trends)

Automation technology is an essential consideration in modern laboratory operation and efficiency. In many ways, the technology that supports analysis of large-scale sample sizes is as important as the analytic instruments. This Kalorama Information report, Lab Automation Markets, 4th Edition, analyzes the present and future revenue opportunity for medical laboratory automation systems and equipment – both for the clinical diagnostics lab and the research laboratory. The following segments of the automation market are detailed with size and four year forecast.

Work stations
Robotics
Dissolution testing
Sample transport systems
Specimen and liquid handling systems
Storage and retrieval systems
Plate readers
Laboratory information management systems

This report gives insight into issues facing the industry and also reviews the nature and the direction of research and trends in automation equipment, including robotics, minaturization, connectivity, consolidation, interegration and analytical intelligence. Companies covered in the report include:

Siemens Healthcare
Tecan Group Ltd.

Market forecasts are based on an examination of current market conditions and on investigations into the development of new products by key companies. Secondary sources as well as interviews with industry executives and experts provide the foundation for the market estimates in the report.

Parternships are an important part of this market and are detailed in this report. As automation companies seek to find new market opportunities and increase their sales, several of these firms have inked partnership agreements or have established other types of collaborative arrangements with in vitro diagnostic (IVD) companies.

For automation suppliers, these arrangements can lead to sales that might otherwise not been achieved without the attraction of the IVD systems.

Among the partnerships detailed in this report:

Singulex-Tecan
Copan-MetaSystems
Brooks Automation-FluidX
Molecular Devices-Roche
bioMérieux-Copan
Roche-Hitachi
Roche-PVT
Pfizer-UCB
Tecan-Recipe
Quanterix-Stratec
