Cell culture processes are the technological foundation of the biopharmaceutical industry. The continued revolution in health care, driven by biological drugs like antibodies and vaccines, has raised the importance of high-performing cell culture for the biopharmaceutical industry.
Biopharmaceutical companies need to ensure productivity, supply security, quality and consistency in their cell culture processes. There is a drive to bring new products to market as quickly as possible, and also pressure for originators to compete with cost-effective biosimilars.
Efficient drug production through cell culture depends on the complex interplay between the drug molecule, the cell, and the process including the cell culture medium.
