Chiral separation column is a technique in which two enantiomers of the same compound with different affinity are separated. The chiral separation is significant, because most of the bioorganic molecules in human body are chiral. It helps in developing technology for analysis and separation of racemic drugs in pharmaceutical industries. The preparation of pure optically active compounds and determination of reaction mechanism & pathways are carried out using chiral separation columns in laboratories.
The advancements in chromatography instruments and importance of chromatography tests for drug approvals are factors that drive the growth of the world chiral separation column market. In addition, increasing tie-ups with research laboratories & academic institutes and government investment in chromatography techniques supplement the growth. However, scarcity of skilled professionals and high costs of instruments hinder the growth of market. Moreover, the growing adoption of green chromatography and rising proteomics market create new opportunities across various geographies.
