A microtome is a tool used to cut extremely thin sections of tissue samples. Microtomes help in extremely fine cuts that are important for preparations used in microscopy. Different kinds of microtomes made up of metals and glass are used depending on the type of specimen and the desired thickness.
The global Microtome Market Share is projected to register a CAGR of 6.1% and accounted for USD ~120 million in 2018.
The growth of the global microtome market is driven by various factors such as an increase in the incidence of chronic disorders, increasing prevalence of lifestyle diseases, and increasing mergers & acquisitions by prominent players in the market. However, lack of skilled workforce is projected to hamper the growth of the global microtome market.
The global microtome market is currently dominated by several market players such as Danaher Corporation, Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Sakura Finetek, among others. Additionally, growing growth strategies adopted by market players are driving the growth of the market. For instance, in 2018, Sakura Finetek launched Accu-Cut SRM 300 LT, manual microtome.
