Research related to life sciences in laboratories is receiving funds from private and public bodies to provide an in-depth analysis of cellular studies and the effects of microbes, viruses, and bacteria on bodies. Pharmaceutical companies, academic institutions, and others are some of the major booster-providers. However, these procedures require a certain level of safety, owing to which the demand for products like biological safety cabinets is on the rise.
Market Research Future (MRFR) predicted in their report that this biological safety cabinets market could score better valuations during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. Advanced technologies and increasing competition in the sector are expected to boost the domain further.
In the Americas, the market will benefit much as the structural scope and tendency to incorporate advanced technologies to maintain the highest level of safety protocols are expected to provide better thrust to the market.
Labconco (U.S.), Thermo Fisher Scientific (U.S.), The Baker Company (U.S.), Kewaunee Scientific (U.S.), Esco Micro (Singapore), Germfree Laboratories (U.S.), NuAire (U.K), Berner International (U.S.), Azbil Telstar (Spain), BIOBASE (China), Cruma (Spain), Air Science (U.S.), and others are major companies to integrate strategic moves and bolster the biological safety cabinets market growth.
In May 2020, Air Science announced the launching of the Purair BIO Class II, Type A2 Biological Safety Cabinets (BSCs) that would provide a primary containment work area to help various cell culture processing, life science research, and other applications to ensure the protection of the user, the work product, and the environment. This would also mitigate the chances of cross-contamination on the work surface.
In July 2020, Yinson Production West Africa Limited (YPWAL) announced that they had donated a Biological Safety Cabinet worth USD 4,600. The National Public Health Reference Laboratory at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital in Accra received this donation and is expected to benefit from it during their fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
These biological safety cabinets are fast emerging as an essential tool in the battle against contagious diseases. The COVID-19 pandemic is not the first one in recent times to create such a ruckus across nations. There were other diseases like Ebola and Anthrax, but the scale in which it has affected is unprecedented. That is why equipping research labs with the best possible tools are a necessity to prevent the disease from spreading.
