Laboratory glassware washers are equipment used to wash and dry several types of laboratory glassware. Different types of laboratory glassware such as beakers, slides, burettes, volumetric flasks, measuring cylinders, and Petri dishes are used in clinical laboratories to perform routine tasks. Laboratory glassware is designed and developed to clean and remove organic as well as inorganic compounds from used laboratory glassware. These are also available in portable models and fixed bench top models and have either single door or multiple doors as per the requirements of end-users. Laboratory glassware washers feature wash cycle times and programs, water heating range, wash and drying mechanisms, and programmable controls. Other considerable features of these washers include noise levels, network compatibility, and energy efficiency. Laboratory glassware washers are widely used by hospitals & diagnostic laboratories, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, and other life sciences industries.
Demand for laboratory glassware washers is influenced by rapid growth of the life science, health care, and food & beverage industries. The worldwide increasing burden of biological sample processing in diagnostic or pathology labs has encouraged development of automated laboratory systems with improved accuracy and reduced the turnaround time for sample processing. Technological advancement in glassware washers such as automation, network compatibility, and programmable controls are likely to fuel demand in the near future. Increasing base of diagnostic laboratories in emerging countries is anticipated to boost demand for laboratory glassware washers during the forecast period. For example, Metropolis Healthcare, a leading multinational chain of pathology laboratory, has 130 pathology labs in India, Mauritius, South Africa, and Sri Lanka, and plans to increase the number to 250 by the end of 2019. Increase in life sciences R&D expenditure by governments and the private sector is projected to propel The Laboratory Glassware Washers Market during the forecast period. However, high cost and inability to wash plasticware in these washers are likely to restrain the global glassware washers market during the forecast period.
