Disposable image sensors, a revolution for microscopy & next-generation sequencing

“Microscopy & NGS markets are undergoing enormous technological changes”, announces Marjorie Villien, PhD. Technology & Market Analyst at Yole Développement (Yole). “These innovations are opening the way for new business opportunities, especially within the camera image sensors industry.”

Indeed, one of the most remarkable changes is the introduction of disposable image sensors within the cameras for microscopy & NGS. In this dynamic context, the market research & strategy consulting company announces 18% CAGR in volume between 2018 and 2024… In this dynamic context, Yole announces today its relevant technology & market analysis, Cameras for Microscopy & NGS

Cameras are key elements in the microscopy and NGS space. Indeed, today most microscopes are digital microscopes that use at least one (and sometimes more) cameras.

“The main trend in optical microscopy is to attain higher resolution, as well as faster acquisition and higher sensitivity for quicker and better diagnostics, and real time imaging of living organisms,” explains Marjorie Villien from Yole. “CCD is the main image sensor technology used today, but CMOS is gaining market share due to an increasing need for high-speed image acquisition.”

However, this trend towards better imaging is counterbalanced by another trend – one that leans towards portability and use of microscopy at the point of care. These systems are sleeker and cheaper, and deliver microscopy results directly to the caregiver… Full story
