Cell culture: The opportunities and the challenges
The promise of cell culture in research and production is accelerating demand, and emphasising the challenges, of this process
Its increasing use in the development of medicines and vaccines, coupled with society’s focus on more sustainable food production, is driving demand for cell culture.
To meet this demand, challenges such as variability in the growth, behaviour, and purity of cultured cells, a lack of proper infrastructure for cell-based research activities, high costs of scaling up production or increasing throughput; and ethical issues need to be addressed.
In this ebook, we explore:
- Increasing demand and how to maximise opportunities
- The development of cell culture labs to address our world’s leading challenges
- Changes in the sector over the next 18 months
- Challenges of large-scale innovation within cell culture labs
- Automated cell culture
