Biopreservation Market — Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Biopreservation is the technique used to increase shelf life of product, and to ensure the stability, purity of bio specimens. Bio-preservation is used for the storage of cells, tissues, organs and its recent trend includes its use in food safety. The equipment such as refrigerators, liquid nitrogen and consumables, and media and laboratory information management systems are used for bio preservation. Biobanking is a type of biopreservation that is widely used in medical research such as genomics research and for personalized medicine. Numerous type of bio specimen like saliva, plasma, and purified DNA can be maintained through biopreservation technique and maintain safe from contaminants. Some samples can be stored for longer time with the help of biopreservation so that it can be used for longer research studies.
