    Market Dynamics


    Cell based assays are a method for assessing the biological and cytotoxic effects of pharmaceuticals, as well as their potency and mode of action. It is a homogeneous method for figuring out how many living and dead cells are present in a sample. Living cells are examined utilizing a variety of properties, including pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, using cell-based assays.

    In healthcare research and development, cell-based assays have become an adaptable tool, particularly in studies targeted at understanding certain cell functions, such as antibody function or therapeutic efficacy on a set of cells.

    Market Drivers

    In contrast to biochemical tests, cell-based assays provide consistent tissue-specific responses in a physiologically realistic microenvironment. The pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are also utilizing cell-based assays as part of their lead discovery and optimization processes for drug development, which is the main driver fueling this market's expansion.

    COVID-19 Impact

    Additionally, the likelihood of disease outbreaks (such as COVID-19 and swine flu) increasing as well as an increase in research activities are predicted to drive market expansion. The market's expansion is additionally anticipated to be tempered by the cheap costs of labor and raw materials as well as the rising number of CROs offering drug discovery services.

    Several investments/guidelines in the market have been directed in recent years, which would boost the overall market. Some of them are:

    • Over the past few years, several Asian governments have intensified their attention on life science research. For instance, a public-private collaboration in Japan called the Global Health Innovative Technology (GHIT) Fund supports a range of R&D initiatives for drug discovery, including the screening of compound libraries relevant to numerous infectious diseases. The global market for cell-based assays is primarily driven by R&D spending for the discovery of novel pharmaceuticals. The World Bank believes that rising economies in Asia and the Rest of the World have spent more on R&D than developed economies in North America and Europe.

    Recent Developments

    The market for cell based assay is highly competitive. The market players are highly focused on mergers, expansions, and product approvals, to sustain in this market.

    Below are a few key developments:

    • In September 2022, as part of the initial construction phase of its new € 29 million China Biologics Testing Center, Merck, a renowned science and technology corporation, built a viral clearance (VC) laboratory. It is the first facility of its sort for Merck in China, measuring 5,000 square meters. The VC laboratory will address China's double-digit demand for VC testing services by enabling companies to undertake viral clearance studies locally from pre-clinical research to commercialization. By 2023, the VC laboratory created about 120 employees.
    • In August 2022, five new Charles River Accelerator and Development Lab (CRADL) facilities opened in California and Washington, according to an announcement from Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. In important bio hubs, CRADL offers adaptable, turnkey vivarium leasing space backed by Charles River's technical and veterinary support expertise. The company is building its first facility in Seattle and adding two more sites in San Diego to better serve the areas of Sorrento Valley and Torrey Pines as a result of the recent acquisition of Explora Biolabs. Additionally, CRADL has expanded its South San Francisco facilities and opened a new site in Thousand Oaks.
    • In April 2022, Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. and Valo Health, Inc. introduced Logica, a medication solution powered by artificial intelligence (AI) that instantly converts clients' biological insights into optimal preclinical assets.
    • In April 2022, a leading supplier of contract vivarium research services, Explora BioLabs Holdings, Inc., was purchased by Charles River Laboratories International, Inc.
    • In March 2022, the BD Rhapsody TCR/BCR Multiomic Assay, a cutting-edge set of reagents that enables researchers to more easily and thoroughly analyze critical immune system cells, was released by BD (Becton, Dickinson, and Company), a leading global medical technology company. This assay offers a tool to advance research in autoimmune disorders, immuno-oncology, and infectious diseases.
    • In January 2021, Thermo Fisher Scientific purchased Phitonex, a business with headquarters in North Carolina. Phitonex has developed a spectral dye platform for high-resolution biological applications. The Phiton platform from Phitonex is intended to hasten the development of immunology, immuno-oncology, and cell therapy. The platform serves as a framework to keep a broader variety of fluorescent dyes in defined ways, enabling researchers to gather more thorough data from cell samples. Additionally, it enables scientists to swiftly produce a variety of dye labels that can be used to identify more proteins and cell types in a single experiment
    • In March 2019, CellBio Services, a broad array of distinctive, tailored solutions created to address particular, unique research application demands, was announced by Lonza. Researchers working for pharmaceutical and contract manufacturing companies have access to a wide range of services, including medium preparation, cell isolation, cell characterization, transfection services, cell-line expansion and banking, and three-dimensional (3D) cell culture.
