Cell Sorter Market Research, 2032

The global cell sorter market size was valued at $0.5 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $1.3 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 8.6% from 2023 to 2032. Cell sorting is the process by which a particular type of cell is distinguished from others present in a sample based on its physical or biological characteristics, such as size, morphological parameters, viability, and the expression of both extracellular and intracellular proteins. Cell sorters are powerful instruments used to separate and isolate specific cells from a heterogeneous mixture. These devices combine with the flow cytometry principle, a method that analyzes and measures the character of cells, with the ability to physically separate and accumulate the preferred cells. Cell sorters are commonly utilized in diverse fields of study such as immunology, oncology, stem mobile studies, and microbiology.
