Cell Culture Monitoring Biosensors- Market Insights
Cell cultures are increasingly becoming important for scientist and biologists to study about physiology and biochemistry of cells. Therefore, cell culture monitoring is very essential for the continuous characterization of cultured cells, in order to have a better understanding about cell line’s growth and metabolism properties. Cell culture is a process, in which cells are grown under controlled conditions, outside their natural environment. Biosensors are used for monitoring of the cell culture, which keeps complete track of cell cultures performance, cell growth, and culture contamination.
Biosensors play an important role in cell culture monitoring to detect various activities occurring during the process of cell culture, such as temperature change, release of desired metabolites, toxic substance and cell growth and increase in cell density. All these parameters contribute for maintaining quality of cell culture and ensuring its reproducibility, credibility, acceptance, for proper application in industry.
The global cell culture monitoring biosensors market was valued at US$ 291.3 million in 2018 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10.7% over the forecast period (2019-2027).

Increasing product launches by manufacturers of biosensors used for cell culture monitoring is expected to boost the global cell culture monitoring biosensor market growth over the forecast period.
Manufacturers are focused on developing and launching technologically advanced sensors to make cell culturing more convenient for research laboratories, and pharmaceutical organizations which is expected to drive global cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth over the forecast period. For instance, in August 2018, C-CIT Sensors AG launched CITSens MeMo, an electrochemical enzyme-based sensor to monitor glucose and lactate in in situ cell cultures. Moreover, in September 2018, C-CIT Sensors AG showcased the ‘CITSens MeMo’ at the Bioprocess International Conference & Exhibition at the Hynes Convention Center, located in Boston, U.S.
Increasing importance of biosensors in cell culture monitoring has grabbed researchers focus to study about the biosensors importance in cell culture monitoring, which is expected to drive the global cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth
Researchers monitor cell growth at regular intervals and stop the cell growth, when desired growth of cells (cell density) is achieved. Manual monitoring of cell culture is time consuming and is associated with high human error risk. Therefore, a device or analyzer that can continuously monitor the cell culture without requiring manual intervention could help reduce error and save time. Electrochemical biosensors and fiber optic biosensors are used in cell culture monitoring analyzers, for analyzing various parameters such as temperature, cell density, and cell growth. For instance, according to an article published in Biosensors Journal 2018, researchers of particular organization and laboratories who studied about the biosensors used in cell culture monitoring, highlighted about Sensing Cell Culture Flask (SCCF), a cell culture monitoring system that access the cellular microenvironment in 2D cell culture using electrochemical microsensors. The system include normal conventional cell culture flask with a microsensor chip embedded at the bottom.
Manufacturers are focused on offering biosensors, which is expected to drive the global cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth
PreSens Precision Sensing GmbH offers several sensors such as O2, PH, and Co2 sensors, which are used in cell culture monitoring. The company offers an integrated system ‘Cell Culture Flask with integrated oxygen and pH Sensor CFS-HP5-PSt3’ which helps in measuring PH level and Oxygen content or presence in cell culture. Moreover, C-CIT Sensors AG, Sarissa Biomedical Ltd., Lonza, Lifeonics, Nova Biomedical, and Conductive Technologies, Inc., are some of the key players in the market that offers biosensors for cell culture monitoring. Such devices offered by key players are expected to boost the global cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth over the forecast period.
Various application of cell culture in several different industries is expected to propel the global cell culture monitoring biosensor market growth
Cell culture finds application in research and product development across a wide range of sectors, which includes food, pharmaceuticals, and biotechnology, among others. Cell culture technique are used in for understanding biological mechanisms in the field of regenerative medicines and in development of new drugs and therapies. Growing biosimilars industry, is further expected to increase demand for biosensors in cell culture monitoring.
Moreover, rising preference for personalized medicines is also expected to drive the cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth, as culture technique is used for identifying potential biomarkers and developing a targeted drug therapy with accurate and continuous monitoring of critical cell culture parameters at regular time intervals. These factors are expected to fuel demand for cell culture monitoring biosensors during the forecast period. For this, sensors in the devices need to be very sensitive to record the parameters such as changes in the cell size, cell count, temperature, and other. Furthermore, increasing demand for portable devices (biosensors) in turn is fueling demand for micro- and nano-sized sensors with high sensitivity and accuracy.
Factors restraining the global cell culture monitoring biosensors market growth include lack of awareness among life sciences research professionals about availability of such technologies in the market.
