Middle East & Africa Prepacked Chromatography Columns Market By Product Type (>1 Litre Column, 100-1000ML Column and 1-100ML Column), Techniques (Ion Exchange Chromatography, Hydrophobic Stationary Phase Chromatography, Multimodal Chromatography, Affinity Chromatography and Gel Filtration Chromatography), Application (Sample Preparation, Resin Screening, Protein Purification, Anion and Cation Exchange, Affinity Chromatography and Desalting), End-User (Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Nutraceuticals, Food & Beverages, Analytical Laboratories, Agriculture & Environment and Academics & Research), Countries (South Africa and Rest of Middle East & Africa) – Industry Trends and Forecast to 2026Chromatography Columns are the column specific apparatus that have main applications in the decontamination procedures of chemical compounds. Prepacked columns are the columns that are pre-filled with accurate proportions of resins and solvents required in sample preparations and drug testing in the research laboratories. The need for better single-used columns and increase in disposable systems in the bioprocessing of compounds is increasing the demand for these prepacked columns thereby increasing the market share potential of the prepacked chromatography columns market.
Column Chromatography is mainly an application of chemistry that is used in separation of elements from a mixture of compounds. Biopharmaceutical and protein purification along with sample preparation using column chromatography techniques requires larger sized prepacked columns in order to provide high quality end user product. The columns move at different rates to get separated in various fractions of compounds which can be used in wide range of solvents. The main advantage of this technique lies in low time requirement with very low maintenance and labor cost providing great operational flexibility.
The healthcare industry is highly dependent on the sample preparation by using variety of chromatography methods. It is considered the most accurate and cost effective technique for the extraction of the compounds from the biological fluids.
Middle East & Africa prepacked chromatography columns market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 8.3% in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.
