Cell Culture: The World Market for Media, Sera, and Reagents
As the biopharmaceutical market grows, so will the cell culture products market. 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 for biopharmaceutical production is slow, expensive and complicated, optimizing cell culture development is of paramount concern to companies developing biopharmaceuticals.
This report is focused on cell culture used in the research and production of biopharmaceuticals, analyzing the world cell culture market and the major trends driving this market in three specific segments:
