ELISA readers are also known as microplate readers or plate readers. ELISA washers are also called microplate washers or plates. ELISA washers are designed to perform washing operations required in the ELISA technique. Microplate washer performs the washing of ELISA plate’s wells during different stages of the technique. Microplate washer has been designed to supply cleaning buffers required for the ELISA technique in a controlled manner. Depending on the test, the washer can intervene from one to four times, supplying the washing buffer and agitating and removing the unbound reagents until the programmed number of time and cycle is completed. The washer has two reservoirs: one for the washing buffer, the other for the waste generated during the washing process. ELISA readers detect biological, chemical, or physical events of samples in microtiter plates. Sample reactions can be assayed in 6-1536 well format microtiter plates. In most cases, a high-intensity lamp passes light to the microtiter well. Light emitted by the reaction in the microplate well is quantified by a detector.
Increasing automation in clinical laboratories that want to achieve higher productivity and cost efficiency are expected to drive the growth of the market in the forecast period. Automation helps streamline the workflow and results in a more reproductive process with less hands-on interaction, which can significantly reduce costs and errors, and decrease the need for skilled labor. Automation can help alleviate pending labor shortages caused by retirement. Current professionals are reaching retirement age in disproportionate numbers. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that 13,800 medical laboratory professionals are needed each year through 2012 to fill vacant positions.
The global ELISA readers and washers market can be segmented based on product type, end-user, and region. Based on product type, the ELISA readers and washers market can be divided into ELISA readers and ELISA washers. ELISA readers can further be classified into single-mode
microplate readers and multi-mode microplate readers. ELISA readers are expected to account for a major market share during the forecast period due to a wide range of applications of the readers, such as, molecular interactions, enzyme activity, cell toxicity, immunoassays, and high throughput screening of compounds and targets in drug discovery. Based on end-user, the ELISA readers and washers market can be bifurcated into pharmaceutical companies, clinical laboratories, and others
Based on region, the global ELISA readers and washers market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America was a lucrative market for ELISA readers and washers in 2017 and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. Dominance of North America on the global market can be attributed to a number of factors, including the advantages of lab automation. Lab automation will continue to be a critical component of pharmaceutical drug discovery, biotechnology, and clinical specimen processing. Also, dearth of efficient professionals is expected to drive the growth of the market in the region. According to National Center for Biotechnology Information, nationally, there are approximately 2,600 medical laboratory science (MLS) and 2,300 medical laboratory technician (MLT) students graduating each year, creating a total of 4,900 new personnel to fill over 9,100 job openings, resulting in a 46% vacancy rate. In Texas, there are about 225 MLS graduates and 200 MLT graduates to fill 985 jobs, leaving 57% of the jobs unfilled. Europe was also a significant market for ELISA readers and washers market in 2017 due to upsurge in investment in research and innovation by the government and presence of large pharmaceutical R&D labs in this region. The ELISA readers and washers market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period due to increasing pressure on laboratories to cut-down cost and minimize errors by integrating mechanical, electronic, and informatics tools to perform an ever expanding variety of laboratory tasks.
Prominent players operating in the global ELISA readers and washers market are PerkinElmer, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, MDS Analytical Technologies, Tecan, BioTek Instruments, Inc., Corning, and Greiner Bio-One, among others.
