Growing awareness about stem cell storage at birth is gaining importance in the cryopreservation equipment market landscape.

Cutting-edge Sensor Technology Aids pH and Co2 Measurement in Benchtop Incubators

The cryopreservation equipment market is largely consolidated with three dominant players accounting for a combined share of ~66% of the cryopreservation equipment market. However, difficulty to establish the right culture environment and incubator conditions for laboratories and IVF clinics are some of the challenges faced by emerging players. Hence, manufacturers in the cryopreservation equipment market are increasing production capabilities to develop equipment that provide insights on pH measurement. For instance, Planer — a supplier of controlled temperature products, innovated in PetriSense®ST, a sensor that provides monitoring of pH and CO2 in benchtop incubators.

Incubators type segment dominates the cryopreservation equipment market and is projected to reach a value of ~US$ 2.9 Bn by 2027. Hence, equipment companies are increasing technical expertise in sensor technology to support incubator applications in laboratories and IVF clinics. Portability and flexibility of petri dish-sized sensors is gaining application in laboratory equipment. Thus, manufacturers in the cryopreservation equipment market are expected to increase their scope for incremental opportunities by developing advanced sensor equipment to cater to the needs of end users in labs and clinics.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Technological innovations in new sample-prep systems are gaining importance for the study of biological and non-biological materials.

However, the process of obtaining vitrified samples of appropriate thickness on foil grids presents as a challenge for researchers in the cryo-EM analysis. Hence, stakeholders in research and laboratory institutes are investing in automated cryo-EM systems for sample-prep of complex proteins and biomolecules.

Manufacturers should target cryopreservation equipment in countries of Asia Pacific, such as India, due to increased efforts of Indian stakeholders for establishment of new biotechnology facilities with cryo-EM and other instruments. Moreover, emergence of bioclusters for connecting university and academic researchers and technology management units is another driver that is creating lucrative opportunities for companies in the cryopreservation equipment market.
