Cancer, which has become the leading cause of death globally, accounted for 9.6 million deaths in 2018. The growth in the prevalence of this disease has resulted in a need to conduct extensive research for diagnosis and treatment; primary cells form an important part of this research. These cells are ideal models for cancer biomarker discovery and drug screening.

Recent Developments

  • In May 2020, BioIVT (US) introduced high-purity Kupffer cells to its portfolio of human primary hepatic cells to support liver disease drug discovery and development.
  • In January 2020, Charles River Laboratories acquired HemaCare Corporation. This acquisition will aid in expanding Charles River’s scientific capabilities in the high-growth cell therapy sector.
  • In September 2018, Sekisui XenoTech, LLC. (US) added monkey and rodent hepatocytes to its patented CryostaX product line.

North America is the largest regional market for primary cells

The global primary cells market is segmented into four major regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Rest of the World (RoW). In 2019, North America accounted for the largest share in the primary cells market. The growth in the North American primary cells market can be attributed to the increasing number of players launching new human primary cells for research, expansion of the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, growing focus on R&D, and increasing prevalence of cancer in the region.

Primary cell culture contamination is one of the most common problems encountered in cell culture laboratories. The use of contaminated cells endangers cell physiology and often leads to incorrect results or causes the loss of unique cell lines. Contamination in cell cultures not only slows down cell metabolism but can also contaminate final products such as vaccines, which can destroy the entire batch.

“In 2019, human primary cells segment accounted for the largest share of the primary cells market, by origin”
Based on origin, the Human Primary Cells Market is segmented into human and animal primary cells. The human primary cells segment accounted for the largest share in the primary cells market in 2019.
