Inoculating turntables are small devices used for easy and even spreading of inoculum on the substrate, during culture media preparation and straining. Inoculating turntables turn around petri dish on a concentric point using ball bearings, which ensures smooth and effortless spinning for faster and more accurate inoculation. Inoculating turntables are of two types based on the mode of force used to turn the platform – hand-operated and electronic. Electronic turntables offers different rpm settings and a hand or leg operated pedal to on and off the rotations. Increasing number of end users of this product, is expected to be major factor driving the inoculation turntable market growth during the forecast period. However, lack of awareness about turntable inoculating devices/instruments amongst small scale laboratories is expected to be hinder growth of the inoculating turntable market.
Inoculating Turntables Market Dynamics
Increasing use of inoculation turntable for even streaking in microbiology and pharmaceutical industry is expected to boost growth of the inoculating turntables market. For instance, to assess drug efficacy on any bacteria or microbes, the culture media plays a vital role in bacteria production. The involvement or usage of inoculating turntable helps in dense growth of bacterial/microbial colony. Inoculating turntables are commonly used in culture in research laboratories, majorly for antiseptic and antibiotics drugs. For instance, according to Lancet Infectious Diseases Commission, 2014, the consumption of antibiotic drugs raised gradually to 36% from 2000 to 2010. Additionally, BRICS countries contributed a share of around 75.4% of the growth. Dense antibiotic drug manufacturing by culture media on inoculating turntable, is a major factor driving growth of Inoculating turntable market. Moreover, all such factors favor an opportunity-rich growth for the inoculating turntable market over the next couple of decades.
