    What is microbial contamination identification?

    Microbial contamination identification is measuring and monitoring contamination levels to clean and control a polluted environment using viable and non-viable particle counters and particle counting solutions. Microbial contamination identification is mostly used to monitor cleanroom manufacturing and for environmental and industrial applications. From handheld to large equipment, several types of equipment in different sizes and shapes are used to measure contamination in different environmental and industrial applications.

    Market Dynamics

    The microbial contamination identification market, a sizeable market, witnessed impressive growth in the year 2021, due to a rise in cleanroom monitoring in the pharmaceutical industry; a rapid increase in the production of semiconductors, where chemical purity is of utmost priority; and rising demand in the food & beverage processing equipment in the wake of a rise in the food safety concerns. Furthermore, the growing incidence of infectious diseases due to bacteria and viruses is fueling market growth.

    Covid-19 Impact

    Overall, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was insignificant on the demand for microbial contamination identification equipment. Despite the supply chain constraints during that period, companies were able to meet the demand for their industry-leading particle counters and OEM instruments. Particle measuring companies played an important role in the fight against the pandemic through the use of their instruments for cleanrooms, laboratories, and medical facilities worldwide. Furthermore, an increase in monitoring of polluted air and liquid due to the pandemic, a surge in sales of particular counters, and a sudden spike in raw material prices drove the value-wise microbial contamination identification market. 

    Recent Product Developments:

    • Particle Measuring Systems launched the Ultra DI 20 Plus, a liquid particle counter for new applications in ultrapure water contamination monitoring.
    • Particle Plus started shipping newer versions of 2000 and 9000 series remote particle counters for integration into other manufacturing instruments.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions:

    • In 2014, Particle Plus acquired Airy Technology, an industry-leading manufacturer of handheld and remote particle counter technology.
    • In 2021, Met One Instruments, one of the world's leading particle-measuring technology solution providers, was acquired by Acoem.
