Capillary electrophoresis system is an instrument used in separation of nucleic acids and proteins with high accuracy and within short span of time. Capillary electrophoresis is based on the principle of separation of molecules according to charge and size. The basic difference between capillary electrophoresis and gel electrophoresis is that the molecules are separated inside the small capillary tube which is filled with conductive buffer rather than gel. Separation of molecules using capillary electrophoresis is faster and gives higher resolution as the thin tubes have a higher surface-to-volume ratio, which enables to dissipate heat faster, and thus run at high voltages without overheating. Capillary electrophoresis requires small amount of sample which is advantageous in the analysis of rare and expensive sample.
The global Capillary Electrophoresis Systems Market is driven by advantages of capillary electrophoresis such as efficiency, high accuracy, and greater reproducibility over other molecular techniques and analysis technologies. Technological developments in the automation of capillary electrophoresis systems enhance the features through quantitative and automatic separation based on a variety of different configured parameters. The new automatic system provides validated chemistry, high quality pressure and temperature controlling system which enables high reproducibility. These technological innovations in the field of capillary electrophoresis is likely to boost the efficiency and productivity of processes which will augment the growth of capillary electrophoresis market. Rising demand for new therapeutics in drug discovery field has created huge demand for protein and DNA separation method which has increased the demand for capillary electrophoresis systems. However, high cost of equipment and availability of other electrophoresis systems in the market are restraining the capillary electrophoresis systems market.
