- 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
- 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.
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.
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.
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.
- 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.
