The top three revenue-generating end-user segments of the global automated colony pickers market are discussed below:

Research institutes

The segment will be propelled by the increase in demand for automation from research institutes that are investing in the laboratory for applications, such as antibody discovery, microbiology and microbiome research, cell line development, and advancement of synthetic biology.

According to Raghav Bhardwaj Shivaswamy, a lead automation research analyst from Technavio, “A major propellant of automation in the segment will be the increased emergence of research in areas, such as cell line development, which play a crucial role in the development of any biologically-produced therapeutic. Selecting optimal clones from a pool of randomly generated cell lines is a critical step that is expected to see an increase in automation in the next five years.”

Biotechnology and pharmaceuticals industries

The segment is driven by the increase in investment in R&D by companies in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. Companies are implementing automated colony pickers to achieve efficiency for their research purposes.

“Biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies are increasingly investing in R&D to automate laboratories to improve productivity. There is an increase in automation for the selection of colonies and subculturing them, colony picking, re-processing of clones, and selection until the high-producing yeast colonies are identified,” adds Raghav.

Hospitals and private labs

The segment will be driven by innovations in the automation of clinical microbiology labs. In the face of the increasing healthcare costs and aging population, vendors are introducing laboratory automation systems that can help in improving diagnostics.

Hospitals are increasingly relying on clinical laboratories for important medical decisions and reduction in medical errors to enhance patient safety. The reduced availability of skilled labor is also driving clinical laboratories to adopt new processes and systems to deal with the lack of skilled staff. The improvement in laboratory procedures can ultimately result in reducing the length of stay of a patient, lower the risk of infections, and decrease general healthcare expenditure.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Hudson Robotics
  • Kbiosystems
  • Molecular Devices
  • SciRobotics
  • Singer Instruments
