Introduction: Cryopreservation Equipment
Cryopreservation Equipment such as controlled rate freezers, cryogenic incubators, thermocouple sensors for temperature detection, vapor and liquid phase storage, and specialized freezing vessel are generally used for cryopreservation of cells. The extent and viability of cryoinjury in a cell depend on the water content in cryoinjury and the capability of that water to crystallize during the freezing process. The variables that stimulus the survival rate of a cell are the cooling rate, the rewarming rate used, the concentration of cryoprotective agents (CPAs), and the storage temperature. For the preservation of critical biological samples to prevent them from degradation, effective cryopreservation techniques have been developed. Use of CPAs such as dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), sucrose, trehalose, and glycerol for cryopreservation is one of the most common technique. Storing cells in liquid nitrogen at ultralow temperature storage is another technique used for cryopreservation. Since ultra-low temperature stops biological activity comprising all biochemical reactions, biological samples can be preserved without cell death and degradation. Fields such as clinical medicine, zoology, biotechnology, and biomedical research use cryopreservation for biological samples of genes, cells of endangered species, etc.
Dynamics: Global Cryopreservation Equipment Market
Government in many countries are allocating funds and grants to encourage research in biomedical cells and development of regenerative medicine. These funds can help many manufacturers and research institutes to innovate and develop regenerative medicine. Thus, increased government funding will drive demand for biomedical samples for research, thereby inducing demand for cryopreservation equipment for the preservation critical biomedical samples. Cryopreservation techniques are used in biopharmaceutical industry for freezing various cells such as mammalian cells to produce high-value protein therapeutics. Therefore, rapidly growing biopharmaceutical industry is another factor driving global cryopreservation equipment market growth. Cryopreservation process is used for therapy and storage of stem cells. Thus, increasing demand for self-storage of cord blood stem cells coupled with increasing initiatives by government for spreading awareness regarding stem cells preservation is another factor driving target market growth.
Cost of cryopreservation equipment is high especially, equipment used for slow freezing are expensive, which might hamper market growth.
Handling cryopreservation equipment requires specials skills. A slightest slip while handling equipment can lead to severe injuries, which may discourage many to take up careers in this field. Therefore, lack of skilled personnel for handling the cryopreservation equipment may hinder market growth.
Awareness about use of cryopreservation of critical biomedical samples for pharmaceutical, biotechnology, biomedical research, zoology industry, and clinical medicine is increasing. Thus, growth of industries such as pharmaceutical, biomedical research, biotechnology, clinical medicine, and zoology is likely to offer several avenues for global cryopreservation equipment market growth.
Major manufacturers of cryopreservation equipment are focusing on expanding their product portfolio and geographic presence by adopting strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, strategic collaboration with regional manufacturers, and new product launches. For example: Chart Biomedical introduced MVE HEco™ next-generation high-efficiency freezer. Furthermore, Chart Industries, Inc. acquired Harsco AXC to reinforce strategic focus on core cryogenic engineering and products.
