Cell Culture Monitoring Biosensors – Monitor the Cell Culture at Ease
Personalized medicine is at cusp of making rapid strides in the global pharmaceuticals market. This novel treatment method would potentially benefit a large population affected by chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer, respiratory disorders, and neurological disorders. Developing personalized therapy requires understanding the patient’s genetic composition, identifying a biomarker, and multiplication of cells or tissues. Cell culture is the prominent method for cell growth. Moreover, advancements in cell culture techniques, such as the 3D cell culture, has further encouraged extensive use of this technique in medical research.
Researchers monitor cell growth at regular intervals and terminate cell growth when desired growth or number 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 deployed in cell culture monitoring analyzers, enabling various parameters such as temperature, cell density, and cell growth. Awareness about such automated cell culture monitoring devices and analyzers will spur growth of the cell culture monitoring biosensors market.
The global cell culture monitoring biosensors market was valued at US$ 214.7 million in 2015 and is expected to witness a moderate CAGR of 10.0% during the forecast period (2016 – 2024).

Helps reduce error and monitor cell culture at ease
Manual monitoring of cell culture involves risk of contamination, threat to cell culture viability, and involves the arduous task of regular monitoring by research personnel. Automated cell culture monitoring using the biosensors effectively addresses all these concerns. This is expected to be a major driving factor for cell culture monitoring biosensors market. Using biosensors, researcher can prevent contamination, reduce monitoring errors, and decrease cell culture variability. Moreover, frequent manual intervention also decreases. Electrochemical and optical biosensors enables detecting microscopic changes, hydrogen peroxide levels, glucose levels, and many such parameters. Further, increasing research on piezoelectric biosensors will propel the cell culture monitoring biosensors market.
C-CIT Sensors AG, Sarissa Biomedical Ltd., Lonza, Lifeonics, Nova Biomedical and Conductive Technologies, Inc., are some of the key players in the market. Lifeonics has developed a cell culture monitoring device that can be placed in the cell culture flask till the time one wants to monitor the culture. The devices is chargeable and can be reused in another cell culture monitoring process. Such innovative devices will also benefit and boost the cell culture monitoring biosensors market.
Cell culture is fast emerging as an important tool for diagnosing and clinically treating various diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s. Companies are focusing on diversifying their cell depository and enhancing their expertise by laying emphasis on recruitment of highly trained professionals in order to gain a competitive edge in the market. Apart from application in new drug research, cell culture also finds wide usage in drug repurposing, which in turn boosts demand for monitoring biosensors. The trend is moving towards the 3D cell culture technique that quite closely resembles the complex microenvironment in cells. According to VF Bioscience SAS, cell culture technique is also gaining popularity in the field of food & beverages, a trend that is estimated to gain significant traction in 2017. According to News Medical Life-sciences, in 2017, researchers are inclined towards developing culture models that can be used in early treatment of age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD is the third-major cause for total vision loss and is more prevalent among the geriatric population.
