Slide Processing System automates the denaturation and hybridization steps in slide-based fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) assays, and provides walk-away convenience for clinical and research laboratory personnel.
The slide processing system processes as many as 12 slides at once, and does not need to be fully loaded to maintain temperature accuracy. Additionally, the instrument offers temperature uniformity and heats slides to temperatures ideal for FISH procedures. These characteristics aid in the high acceptance of slide processing system by end users.
Some leading slide processing systems such as ThermoBrite processing system, RNAscope® EZ-Batch™ Slide Processing System, are dominating this market. These slide processing systems include an easy-to-read backlit display, a slide guide, and numeric keyboard, which allows the user to program as many as 40 temperature/time protocols.
ThermoBrite processing system is one of the dominating products available in global slide processing systems market. This programmable temperature controlled slide processing system accepts a wide range of sample types, is easy to use, and reduces hands-on time by more than 50% while ensuring overall precision and accuracy in all slide-based assays
Slide Processing System Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing number of surgical procedures is one of the key factors driving the demand for slide processing system in hospitals, surgical centers, and emergency rooms. Furthermore, the technological advancement of slide processing system is another factor which is propelling the slide processing system market. With regards to this, the system is featured with the following added advantages, such as elimination of manual steps and reduction of hands-on time during (FISH) procedures. The slides do not have to be fully loaded to maintain temperature accuracy, also slide guide keeps the slides in place and allows for one hand removal.
Moreover, the added advantages of the slide processing system is also boosting the demand for the system by the end users. For instance, the system accepts a range of sample types and reduces hands-on time while ensuring precision and accuracy in (FISH) assays. Besides, the system heats slides to temperatures ideal for (FISH) procedures, and the lid seals tightly when closed, allowing for optimal chamber humidity However, the high cost of the system is the only major factor that is restraining the growth of the slide processing system market.
