  • A growth medium or culture medium is a substance in which microorganisms or cells can grow.There are different types of media for growing different types of cells.
  • Types of growth media are: Nutrient media , Minimal media , Selective media , Differential media .
  • There are two major types of growth media: those used for cell culture, which use specific cell types derived from plants or animals, and microbiological culture, which are used for growing microorganisms, such as bacteria or yeast. The most common growth media for microorganisms are nutrient broths and agar plates; specialized media are sometimes required for microorganism and cell culture growth.
  • Cell culture technology is rapidly evolving. At first these developments mainly occurred at a laboratory scale, since the culture media requirements for the propagation of animal cells are very complex and in fact are still largely unknown for many cell types.
  • Complex media are rich in nutrients, they contain water soluble extracts of plant or animal tissue (e.g., enzymatically digested animal proteins such as peptone and tryptone). Usually a sugar, often glucose is added to serve as the main carbon and energy source. The combination of extracts and sugar creates a medium which is rich in minerals and organic nutrients, but since the exact composition is unknown, the medium is called complex.
  • One of the most critical and important raw materials for biopharma is culture media and is directly proportionate to the growth of the industry. The culture media (for both microbial and cell culture) is growing at over 20 percent. The present decade has shown tremendous growth and investment in the pharmaceutical sector in India as well as globally. The growth potential observed pertains mainly to regulated markets.
  • The quality of the media depends directly upon the quality
    of the raw materials used for their preparation. Water is the
    most important raw material used for the preparation of
    culture media. The parameters to be checked are presence of
    copper ions, conductivity and pH. Ideally there should be no
    copper ions present in water because it is inhibitory for the
    growth of microorganisms.
  • Many processes have been developed using plant suspension cultures as a result of the ease in scale-up and application of traditional optimization strategies developed for microbialand mammalian cell systems. However, secondary metabolite production is often higher in differentiated tissues; thus hairy root cultures that have been transformed genetically with Agrobacterium spp. have also been widely used.
  • Globally there are a handful of companies that deal in culture media. In microbiological culture media, we have BD, Merck, Oxoid and bioMerieux while in cell culture media, the players include Invitrogen, Sigma and Cambrex.
  • Several Indian biopharma companies are at the sourcing end for these markets, and these are the ones that require quality assured, consistent and cost-effective raw material supplies with various quality systems and certification program.
  • The worldwide cell culture market is estimated at $1.02 billion in 2005 and is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 12.7 percent to cross $1.86 billion by 2010. With advances in product development, demand for specialty and custom serum-free media, particularly in biomanufacturing applications, will drive market growth.
  • In India, companies like Sigma Aldrich, Invitrogen, HyClone, Alfa Laval, HiMedia Labs, Cambrex, Corning Life Sciences are offering a range of products and services in cell culture space.
  • According to industry sources, it is difficult to estimate the size of the cell culture sector as companies offer different range of products and services like media, vessels, cell lines, reactors etc. The sector is expanding and will see a double-digit growth in the near future, with the entry of pharmaceutical companies into the biopharmaceuticals sector.
  • Culture media play a pivotal role in any microbiology
    laboratory. They are widely employed for isolation,
    identification and sensitivity testing of different pathogenic
