Global Automated Sample Storage Systems Market to Reach $1.6 Billion by 2026

All types of laboratories need sample storage, irrespective of the type of sample being stored namely chemical or biological. Use of manual storage methods involve use multiple types of sample containers that are stacked haphazardly in several freezers, which also need to be shared with other users. Conventional freezers generally take up a large amount of highly valuable lab space, and also present issues in ensuring sample quality. Crowded samples can create blockages for air flow in the freezers, which can lead to degradation of the samples due to temperature gradients. Also, users will have to spend considerable time searching for their samples, which can also threaten other contents of the freezer as they are exposed to ambient room conditions. There is also risk of samples being inadvertently moved or even mishandled, with lack of documentation preventing tracking of the times freezer content is exposed to ambient conditions. In this regard, the role of automated sample storage system continues to gain importance, enabling comprehensive control over environmental conditions, providing traceability and ensuring proper access. As a result, sample integrity remains unchanged even among shared users.

Biological specimens or biospecimens such as blood, saliva, urine and others are collected for various purposes including normal patient monitoring and for conducting basic, clinical and epidemiological research studies. The reliable access to and appropriate use of biospecimens is a critical contributor to several medical advances including research on heart disease, cancer and AIDs. While biospecimens have been collected for several years, it is only in the recent times that appropriate protocols and practices have been established for collection, storage and processing of the specimens. The biological specimens can be stored under various conditions based on their designed laboratory analyses. Common specimens like serum, DNA and plasma are stored in mechanical freezers at -80°C, while lymphocytes and other cellular specimens are required to be stored in vapor phase of liquid nitrogen at temperatures -150°C or below, in case of a need for long-term cellular viability. On the other hand, compound storage refers to the storage of chemical libraries as well as bios-samples that are used for clinical research and drug discovery purposes. The shift towards automation is leading to the growing prominence of automated biological samples storage systems. Automated freezer systems for instance enable convenience storage as well as retrieval of samples. Automated systems are considered suited for facilities or studies using one or few specimen types to be collected in large volumes for processing and storage. Sample storage systems vary based on sample capacity and sample temperature requirements.

Amid the COVID-19 crisis, the global market for Automated Sample Storage Systems estimated at US$846.8 Million in the year 2020, is projected to reach a revised size of US$1.6 Billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 12.2% over the analysis period.
