Overview

Overview

The technique of mammalian cell culture is commonplace in laboratories engaged in the investigation of such fundamental processes as gene expression, protein structure and protein function. The Cell Culture Dashboard was developed from responses to a 35-question survey by over 365 scientists predominantly located in North America and Europe. This Dashboard reveals key market indicators for the cell culture research products market as a whole as well as for the following sub-segments:

  • Basal Media
  • Animal Sera
  • Balanced Salt Solutions
  • Serum Free Media
  • Dry Powdered Media
  • Growth and Attachment Factors

Culturing mammalian cells provides sufficient material for a variety of downstream experimental processes, including:

  • Cell based assays
  • Reporter gene assays
  • Pathway analysis
  • Gene expression analysis
  • Gene function studies

In order to dive more deeply into the characteristics and dynamics of the market for cell culture products, Percepta has launched this initial Cell Culture Dashboard, designed to take a snapshot of the current market landscape.

Important Note: This report only includes analyses related to the research market for cell culture products and not the market for products used in bioproduction or pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Survey Methodology

In November/December of 2006, Percepta fielded three surveys to our panel of active life scientists:

  • Nucleic Acid Purification and Amplification Survey
  • Gene Silencing and Gene Expression Profiling Survey
  • Mammalian Transfection and Cell Culture Survey

This report reveals the results of the Cell Culture section of the Mammalian Transfection and Cell Culture Survey. The results of the Transfection portion of the survey as well as the other two studies are available as separate Life Science Dashboard™ publications. Contact Percepta for more information on these additional reports.

Individuals were invited by e-mail blast to click through to a webpage at bioanalytix.com where the survey was hosted. Invitations were delivered on November 13, 2006 and results collected through December 8. A total of 365 scientists completed the survey, of which 319 are actively engaged in culturing mammalian cells or cell lines.

Respondent Demographics

Respondents from the academic, government and commercial market segments are well represented, with over 18% of respondents employed in an industry setting. Nearly 80% of respondents are from North America, while about 19% reside in Europe.

Junior (Lab Tech, Grad Students), mid level (Post-Doc, Lab Manager) and senior (Professor/PI, Group Leader) scientists are well represented in the data set, with the most cited job titles being Scientist/Senior Scientist (22.7% of respondents) and Post-Doctoral Fellow (17.8%).

A wide variety of scientific areas of specialization is also evident, led by cell biology (indicated by 23.5% of respondents as their primary area of expertise), biochemistry (16.6%), immunology (10.5%) microbiology/infectious disease/ virology (8.6%) and neuroscience (6.6%).

Small (1-5 scientists), medium (6-20 scientists) and large (>20 scientists) laboratories are well represented: 32.1% of respondents work in labs where 1 to 5 people perform experiments; 51.7% in labs with 6 to 20 experimenters, and the remaining 16.1% in labs with greater than 20 bench scientists.
