Ultraviolet transilluminators provide gleaming illumination of transparent materials which are placed on the area which needs to be filtered. Some of the key characteristics of the Ultraviolet transilluminators are providing sparkling back illumination on transparent material. The ultraviolet transiliminator is uniquely designed with focus in ultraviolet uniformity and intensity. Further, this ultraviolet transiliminator is designed to detect dyed double stranded nucleic acids. The ultraviolet transilluminators has high sensitivity and are capable of detecting double stranded nucleic acids which are labeled with fluorescent dyes such as acridine orange and ethidium bromide. Further, single stranded nucleic acids could also be detected with lesser excitation 302 nm ultraviolet wavelength which is more sensitive to nucleic acid visualization. Ultraviolet transilluminators finds application in molecular biology labs for studying RNA (or DNA) which are separated by electrophoresis with a help of an agarose gel. Immediately after the electrophoresis takes place, the agarose gel is stained with fluorescent dye which helps in binding the nucleic acid. This stained gel is then exposed to UVB light source which provides the DNA / dye fluoresces to become visible. Researchers take up these processes whenever there is a need for taking a sample. This techniques applied by researchers for purifying DNA segment, PCR products, quantifying DNA and verifying integrity after the extraction is completed. Thus the above mentioned applications are expected to drive the ultraviolet transilluminators over the next few years. A key factor which is restraining the ultraviolet transilluminators market is the high cost of the device and thus it is not feasible for small scale industry to implement this device. Further application of ultraviolet transilluminators in the microscopy is a key opportunity for the ultraviolet transilluminators market in the near future. Ultraviolet transilluminators are still not widely used in the microscopy sector. This untapped sector is a key opportunity for the ultraviolet transilluminators market over the near future.
The Ultraviolet transilluminators by application has been segmented into microscopy, medicine, dentistry and others. The medicine segment is further sub segmented into hydrocele, pneumothorax (collapsed lungs) and hydrocephalus. The medicine segment led the ultraviolet transilluminators market in 2016 and is expected to grow at a stable rate over the next few years.
Geographically the ultraviolet transilluminators market could be broadly segmented into North America, Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific and Latin America. North America led the ultraviolet transilluminators market globally and is expected to be the largest contributor in the market over the next few years. Growth in demand for latest digital ultraviolet transilluminators in North America as digital ultraviolet transilluminators are more safer and easier to operate, these are some of the factors driving the ultraviolet transilluminators market in North America. Europe is expected to follow North America in the ultraviolet transilluminators market over the next few years. Further, growth in demand for personalized medicine in North America is expected to drive the demand for ultraviolet transilluminators. High rate of investment in research and development for innovation and development of a wide range of technology, product and services is expected to drive the demand for ultraviolet transilluminators in this region. Further, the ultraviolet transilluminators market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow rapidly over the next few years. There is significant concentration of investment made especially from the government sector in the pharmaceutical and biotech sector. Further entry of new players in the region is expected to drive the ultraviolet transilluminators market over the next few years.
