Serum is the most widely used type of cell culture medium, especially high-quality fetal bovine serum. With the rapid development of biomedical technology, the demand for serum is also rising, so what is the future market demand for media bottles as serum storage containers?
Serum, as a nutrient for cell growth, is mainly used in the early cell culture stage of biopharmaceutical industrial production. Biopharma has been at the forefront of the entire pharmaceutical industry, representing both knowledge-intensive and capital-intensive industries. Since the beginning of the new century, breakthroughs have been made in the research of life science and biomedicine, and biotechnology has become the focus of the world's scientific and technological competition. The global biopharmaceutical industry has developed rapidly in recent years, and a large number of new drugs have passed clinical trials. According to relevant statistics, the world's top ten best-selling drugs and biological drugs account for 80%.
And cell culture medium fermentation is the two major production technology routes of biopharmaceutical companies. Among them, foot-and-mouth disease vaccine, hepatitis B vaccine, rabies vaccine, influenza vaccine and many other vaccines have been applied to cell culture. This is only for vaccine production, not including anti-tumor, Preparation of mainstream drugs such as antiviral. Overall, the biopharmaceutical industry still has a large demand for serum, and media bottles will also usher in market growth under the influence of the industry environment.
The growth of the market is both an opportunity and a challenge for media bottle manufacturers. How to control product quality, provide pharmaceutical companies with better packaging, and win the market with high quality will be the focus of competition among manufacturers.
The FAI climbed 5.9 percent year-on-year in the first 11 months of 2018, quickening from the 5.7-percent growth in Jan-Oct, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said Friday in an online statement.
