The increased interest in biologics has resulted in significant growth in the cell cultures market, as scientists demand optimal media to ensure the viability of their work.
Cell culture media must contain a precise balance of components, such as glucose, glutamine, nucleic acid, vitamins, and other biologically important compounds and primary metabolites. Ensuring that the cell culture media is comprised of the optimal formulation for growth and is free of impurities is vital to the success of biopharmaceutical development. The quality of the product depends on the quality of the media. Moreover, cell culture media is necessary in calculating product yield and cost of manufacturing.
Cell culture products are used in biopharmaceutical research throughout the drug development process - from discovery to development and manufacturing. Key sectors that rely on precise cell culture media include biopharmaceutical companies, cell culture media manufacturers, biosimilar manufacturers and stem cell researchers.
To meet this demand, Shimadzu developed the triple quadrupole mass spectrometer LCMS-8060 and Cell Culture Profiling Method Package to make comprehensive cell culture analysis fast, easy and effective.
