The global 3d cell culture market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16% during the forecast period 2022 to 2028. Cell culture is the procedure in which cells are grown usually outside their natural environment, under controlled conditions. These cells are isolated from the living tissue cells and are maintained under controlled conditions. The conditions at which cells are grown vary for each type of cell. Earlier, the 2D cell culture was used in the laboratories which were unable to reproduce at the created environment. This lead to the advent of 3D cell culture technology, which replicate at the vivo environment. The 3D technology helps the cell to interact with the 3D dimensional surroundings. The 3D Cell Culture Market technology offers a wide range of applications in the domains of drug screening, regenerative medicine, stem cell therapies, cancer research, and cell biology since 3D cell cultures may imitate the structure, activity, and milieu of in-vivo tissues. In 3D cell cultures, the extracellular matrix facilitates cell–cell communication through direct contact, similar to the in-vivo environment, by secreting cytokines and trophic substances. These parameters can be altered in a 2D environment, which can have a major impact on cell–cell communication and, as a result, cell morphology and proliferation. Because 2D cultures can’t replicate the architecture and intricate cellular matrices that 3D cultures can, this technique is gaining traction in the healthcare research field. Furthermore, 3D cell cultures can produce more efficient outcomes and lower the overall cost of the R&D process.
In Feb 2022, Corning Incorporated launched Corning Matribot bioprinter, a breakthrough technology that eliminates the need for cold blocks, ice buckets, or a cold room when dispensing and printing Corning Matrigel matrix, collagen, and other temperature-sensitive hydrogels. The device can also be used to bioprint with alginate-based bioinks and other hydrogels that require ambient temperature.
In Jan 2022, Amerigo introduced Polycaprolactone for research uses. This novel substance will aid scientists in bioprinting rigid tissues like bones and cartilage. It’s a polymer that allows for better control of the final 3D structure’s mechanical properties.
