Automated sample storage systems are the computer controlled storage devices for the preservation of samples mostly used in chemical and life science domains. These type of systems help laboratory personnel the facility to store and retrieve the sample as and when required. By dropping sample temperatures beneath the glass transition phase of water, all the metabolic activities halts. So can be stored for longer duration. The sample storage systems vary from manually controlled, relatively simple and small storage operating devices to large computer controlled automated storage devices. It reduces labor costs, lowers essential workforce requirements, improving workplace safety, and taking out personnel from difficult working conditions (such as cold storage environments). These systems also helped in improving the space utilization and increasing storage density - both horizontally and vertically. Nowadays, long term automated sample storage system is the requirement of almost every research laboratory. Therefore, this sector also rises opportunity for business investment. Various sample storage service providers are also increasing its market as a large number of samples can be stored at one place instead of installing device in separate institutes such as the development of regional and national biobanks.
Demand for the automated sample storage systems are more for clinical research purposes. These systems are designed to overcome several problems in sample collection and storage. It stores a variety of labwares, including a wide variety of microtubes, cryoviles, and blood tubes, some systems can store more than 10 million samples. The machine size varies from M to XL. Robotic systems are also nowadays integrated along with the system in many workstations.
Automated Sample Storage Systems Market: Drivers & Restraints
Automated sample storage market is anticipated to have linear growth proportional to the increase in number of research activities around the globe. These automated sample storage systems has overcome the shortcomings of storing in liquid nitrogen. Theses automated freezer systems checks any significant temperature rises, thus the freeze-thaw cycles are restricted and potential sample degradation is prevented. These type of advantages associated with the automated sample storage system drives its market. The rise in funding in the research sector also increases its market. High installation and maintenance cost limits the market expansion. Uninterrupted electricity problem in some region also limits its installation. Maintaining a large and highly integrated system also requires training and experience. Companies often experience significant ongoing costs for maintenance and updating of various subsystems.
