Dallas, TX (PRWEB) May 04, 2013
The growth in bio-pharmaceuticals is creating an unprecedented increase in demand for cell culture products. Cell culture techniques have been used in biological sciences for more than 50 years; however, cell culture techniques have been applied to production systems for only about 26 years. The cell culture industry, which began in the late 1980s from the utilization of recombinant DNA technology and cell hybridization, is today a major underpinning of the bio-pharmaceutical market.
The choice of cells to use in bio-pharmaceutical production depends on a number of factors, some technical and some economic. Bacteria and yeast, for instance, are relatively simple to grow. Each cell of a bacterium or yeast is an independent organism capable of its own metabolism. Yeasts and bacteria have fairly simple nutritional needs and grow well suspended in a liquid medium, as well as in large fermentors.
This report is focused on cell culture - http://www.reportsnreports.com/reports/239449-cell-culture-the-market-for-media-sera-and-reagents-5th-edition.html used in the research and production of bio-pharmaceuticals. In the pharmaceutical industry, cell culture is a major foundation of bio-pharmaceutical development, bio-processing and manufacturing. Bio-pharmaceutical products are developed from large, complex protein molecules, which require equally complex manufacturing methods and an array of analytical techniques. As growing cells for bio-pharmaceutical production is slow, expensive and complicated, optimizing cell culture development is of paramount concern to companies developing bio-pharmaceuticals. Forecasts and current market sizing are provided in three specific segments:
- Sera, and
