Sample preparation is one of the crucial steps in analysis of any particular substance or chemical. Analytical procedure usually comprise of steps such as sampling, sample preservation, sample preparation, separation, detection and data analysis. After sampling and sample preservation, the next vital step is usually the sample preparation which consumes over 80% of the analysis time. In almost all cases, sample preparation is an imperative step in analysis because many samples are not ready for direct introduction into analytical instrument. Conventionally, solid-phase extraction (SPE), liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), protein precipitation (PP) and dilute and shoot technique have been used for sample preparation during various analytical procedures. The most recent techniques include solid phase microextraction (SPME), Matrix solid-phase dispersion (MSPD) and membrane assisted solvent extraction (MASE). The ever increasing regulatory requirements for testing substances, chemicals and pharmaceuticals promise a better outlook for the global sample preparation market.
Sample preparation is a prerequisite for analysis to convert a real substance into a sample suitable for analysis. Some of the common sample preparation procedure involves extraction, concentration, cleanup, derivatization, speciation, and transfer to vapor phase. However, the number of steps and/or method used for sample preparation depends on the nature of substance subjected to analysis and the intended data to be analyzed. The products in the global sample preparation products market include automation systems, consumables such as chromatography columns, plates, and accessories including, adaptors, manifolds, reservoirsplastic tubings, and fittings. The customers relying heavily on sample preparation products include those from end-user industries such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, and academic research institutes. Since, sample preparation is the most time consuming step in any analysis and end-user industry constantly insists on more efficient products and automation systems to achieve high throughput. The results of analysis directly affect the decision-making process and therefore, this market continues to remain dynamic through regular introduction of more efficient products.
With the recent developments in the pharmaceuticals industry which demand increased sample analysis, the global market for the sample preparation products is expanding at a much faster rate than ever. Among them, sample preparation products for SPE have become indispensible tool in laboratories across the globe. Restricted Access Media (RAM), Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPS) and immunoaffinity sorbents are among important advancements in the sample preparation which enable more selectivity in the sample preparation. The increased selectivity will widen the scope of these techniques particularly in critical areas such as forensic, clinical, pharmaceutical, and biochemical analyses. In similar way, SPE pipette tips, 96 well plates, online-extraction and multifunctional autosamplers offer high throughput analysis. These developments in the sample preparation products market are expected to further propel the global market in the near future.
Geographically, the global sample preparation market can be segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. The market for sample preparation in the North America was largest among all regions and will continue to remain at top position during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. The laboratories in the Asia-Pacific are expected to drive the market in this region
