Cell Line Characterization: Current Landscape and Future Market Evolution

Cross contamination and cell line misidentification are some of the major concerns associated with the use of cell lines. It has been estimated that a net loss of USD 28 billion is incurred every year on research that cannot be replicated due to the involvement of misidentified or contaminated cell lines in the US. To carry out cell line characterization, factors such as source of cell lines, their development history and the biological properties of cells determine the analytical tests required for characterization.┬áThe ‘Cell Line Characterization Services Market, 2017-2027’ report provides an extensive study on the current market landscape and future outlook of the antibody discovery service and platform providers.┬áSome of the most interesting insights from our study are presented below.
