NEW YORK, May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
Cell Culture: The Market for Media, Sera and Reagents, 5th Edition
The growth in biopharmaceuticals 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 biopharmaceutical market.
The choice of cells to use in biopharmaceutical 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 used in the research and production of biopharmaceuticals. In the pharmaceutical industry, cell culture is a major foundation of biopharmaceutical development, bioprocessing and manufacturing. Biopharmaceutical products are developed from large, complex protein molecules, which require equally complex manufacturing methods and an array of analytical techniques. As growing cells f
