Higher Demand for a Combination of Infrared LCM & Ultraviolet LCM

LCM systems are primarily characterized by the type of laser diode equipped in them. In infrared (IR) LCM systems, the thermoplastic film is impregnated with a dye that absorbs light energy in the near-IR spectrum, preventing the cellular constituents from incurring damage. Ultraviolet (UV) laser capture microdissections work on a different principle, wherein the narrow-beam UV laser keeps the desired cell population undamaged, and draws only the required cells while concurrently extirpating the unwanted tissues.

In 2017, nearly half of the revenues procured in the global laser capture microdissection market are anticipated to be accounted by UV-based LCM systems. Meanwhile, IR laser capture microdissection systems are anticipated to register a relatively speedy growth in revenues over the forecast period.

Laser capture microdissection systems developed with the combination of IR and UV laser diodes are anticipated to register fastest growth in terms of demand, and will reflect a 10.9% CAGR during the forecast period. By the end of 2022, the global laser capture microdissection market will also incur an estimated US$ 11 million revenues from the sales of immunofluorescence LCM systems.
