It is projected that a CAGR of 9.4 times will be recorded during the 2020-2030 forecast period. It is anticipated that the industry will fuel the introduction of new integrated liquid processing workstations for non-contact dispensing.

Automated Liquid Handling (ALH) Technologies Market is witnessing Growth due to factors such as

Automated liquid processing devices vary from multi-channel semi-automated pipettors to room-sized devices. The sector is moving in the direction of flexible, flexible ALH systems— apparently for every expenditure. Likewise, the tendency towards higher customer accessibility was accompanied by instrumentation, software, and techniques. Automated liquid handlers arrive with many distinct requirements in a seemingly infinite multitude of settings. An significant consideration is what minimum or peak amount of dispensing is right for your procedures. If your sample quantity is extremely variable, it is worth contemplating having a more solid facility that can dispense low-range and high-range quantity.

The use of liquid-filled integrated liquid treatment devices with reusable set advice for sample processing of bioanalytical assays has several benefits. However, unoptimized liquid handling parameters may result in sample dilution by the automatic liquid handler's device liquid creating probable sample shipping inaccuracy. In this inquiry, specimen distribution liquid handling parameters such as aspiration velocity, dispensation velocity, separation quantity, surplus quantity, and water spaces were carefully examined to know their functions in precise specimen shipment. Consequently, two strategies for optimization of the parameters are presented that achieve accurate sample delivery while maintaining sample integrity.

Automated liquid treatment (ALH) devices are commonly used in a wide spectrum of apps for the shipment of liquid samples, such as high-throughput screening in drug discovery and development studies, and body fluid imaging assays. For bioanalytical techniques used in metabolism and pharmacokinetic research, ALH schemes are also used to move biological samples, handle normal graphs and quality control (QC) specimens, and conduct serial sample dilutions. The sample's quality and shipping precision are essential for bioanalytical assays with rigorous quantitative demandsHowever, an inquiry into the performance of an ALH scheme run with set hints by photometrically and gravimetrically evaluating the dispensed quantities reveals that there was a substantial distinction between the outcomes achieved through the two methods to evaluating quantities. This distinction was ascribed to the dilution by the ALH scheme liquid of the sample supplied quantity when using the standard parameter for liquid handling (LHP) environments.

 Shift in Trends

Manufacturers are creating workstations depending on various surface-free dispensing techniques. These techniques include ultrasound, solenoid, and piezoelectric. For example, LABCYTE INC. utilizes Echo's acoustic liquid processing technology to deliver non-contact dispensing in its products. In addition, effective miniaturization of assay platforms reduces workflow expenditure by reduction in use of expensive reagents. Increasing development of acoustic liquid handling platforms, which enable faster processing, is likely to stoke the growth of the market. Growing trend of automation and advantages of automated liquid handling over manual handling are also providing a fillip to the market. Due to its accuracy, convenience, and small price, touch dispensing has achieved broad recognition over the years. However, the need for liquid processing is noted to change with sample quantity decrease. Surface adhesion is the most prominent variable affecting the efficiency of liquid processing in the sample size from pre to nanoliter.

The industry was divided into autonomous liquid processing workstations and reagents and consumables based on the item. Based on their installation and form, workstations were evaluated. They can be segmented into stand-alone and embedded workstations depending on installation and can be split into multipurpose, pipetting, dedicated liquid handlers, and workstation module depending on sort.

Growing rivalry among pharmaceutical companies is fueling the implementation of robotic workstations and their quest of developing novel drugs. Small footprint and the capacity to deliver precise serial dilution and slice replication, as well as quicker, contribute to greater market penetration. Some of the common pipettors available in the market are Biotek’s Precision XS, Agilent’s Bravo, Beckman Coulter’s Biomek NX, Agilent’s Vprep, Hamilton’s NIMBUS, and TTP Labtech mosquito HTS. Consumables expense pharmaceutical companies & biotech labs considerably. Higher consumer prices together with recurrent use of these products in workflow measures play a crucial part in the development of the section of reagents and consumables. However, it is estimated that growing numbers of third-party suppliers for disposable advice compliant with robotic devices will decrease their acceptance of standard equipment over the years.

In a single drug discovery experiment, more than one million compounds are tested to define fresh drug candidates. Various drug discovery & ADME Tox apps include step-by-step simultaneous dilution across broad dose ranges, re-test choice and transition of compounds, and confirmatory & further evaluation. The drug discovery and ADME Tox section is positioned throughout the forecast period to constitute the major position in the industry for integrated liquid processing techniques. The main benefits connected with the use of autonomous liquid processing systems in drug discovery are the ability to incorporate distinct kinds of liquid handlers and stackers or incubators for improving throughput.

Automated liquid processing is an important component of cancer and genomic studies as it needs protein or DNA solutions to be delivered to substrates or microwells. Usually subsequent measures incorporating synthesis and evaluation involve extra alternatives to be provided. It becomes impractical and tedious to use basic liquid processing methods for these measures. For genomics and cancer research, the adoption of robotic liquid processing techniques is expected to experience significant development in the coming years.
