DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The “Global Micromanipulators Market Size, Share and Industry Trend Analysis by Application, by Type, by Regional Outlook and Forecast, 2022 – 2028” report has been added to the report ResearchAndMarkets.com offerings.
The global micromanipulator market size is expected to reach USD 12.8 million by 2028, growing at a market growth of 4.4% CAGR during the forecast period.
Micromanipulation by robots is a relatively new field. The fundamental physics, sensing, actuation, control approaches, toolkits and systems, and most significantly, a community, have been developed and evolved over three decades. In addition, micromanipulators are also used in biological and microelectronics research to position test probes on small- or medium-scale integrated circuits and hybrid devices.
Mechanical levers, hydraulic pistons connected by tubes containing incompressible fluid, electronic stepper motors or linear actuators, or a combination of these approaches in a single instrument can all be used to reduce motion. To provide coarse and fine placement, mechanisms with distinct ranges of motion or variable reduction ratios can be combined in a single tool.
Micromanipulators are frequently used alongside microscopes. One or more micromanipulators can be attached to a microscope stage or solidly mounted on a bench next to a microscope, depending on the application.
Intracytoplasmic injection of human sperm is a common application of micromanipulation. Under the direct physical direction of an embryologist, a sperm 3 to 5 micrometers wide is injected into an oocyte approximately 100 micrometers in diameter. A tool holder positioned on the manipulator outlet contains a single-use glass micropipette and can be modified to accommodate different tool sizes, along with the angle at which the tool is held.
When looking at micromanipulators, there are several types of motion details to examine. The resolution of the micromanipulator is measured in micrometers per step, which is the smallest unit of movement it can achieve. The total travel distance, also known as the working range, refers to the distance the micromanipulator can move the tool up. Users will undoubtedly notice differences in maximum travel speed, which is the fastest the micromanipulator-driven tool can travel. As mentioned, the working range and maximum travel speed may differ for different diameters or fine and coarse settings.
For larger and smaller motion adjustments, certain micromanipulators intended for use with microscopes combine coarse and fine motions in a single instrument. Under the low-power objective, the researcher can locate an instrument such as a micropipette in the field of view of the microscope, move the micropipette to the desired location on the specimen, center it under the field of view, and then switch to the largest. power objective.
Fine motion control is needed here for small, controlled movements, such as gently approaching a cell for patch-clamp recordings or inserting nuclear material into a cell.
Market Growth Factors:
Increasing frequency of cases of male infertility
Women and men who cannot get pregnant after one year of intercourse without taking contraceptive measures or who have had two or more failed pregnancies are considered infertile. For example, some couples are unable to conceive after one year of unprotected sex, and some couples do not have a viable pregnancy after two years.
In the first three months, some couples under 30 who are usually healthy are ready to conceive. Intracytoplasmic sperm injection is a typical treatment for male and female infertility.
The increasing success rate of IVF technology
An egg is fertilized with sperm outside the body during in vitro fertilization (IVF). IVF is a type of assisted reproductive technology (ART), which is a general term that encompasses therapies that modify sperm or eggs to increase the likelihood of pregnancy. IVF success rates have increased in recent years, especially among older women, which is encouraging for people who want to start a family through IVF. Because IVF is both physically and mentally demanding, it is essential to protect mental health.
Marketing Constraint Factor:
The increased cost of sophisticated micromanipulators
A motorized micromanipulator can be expensive, but for the research or medical laboratory that operates a large number of micromanipulator tests, the precision and speed of a motorized micromanipulator may be worth the investment. The higher cost of sophisticated micromanipulators makes companies hesitant to adopt micromanipulators.
The significantly higher cost might not be a problem for large enterprises, as such large firms do not have financial budget constraints and can invest heavily in the latest technology and equipment, but when it comes to small and medium-sized enterprises, financial constraints and budget are a problem. the important issue.
