Rising Use of CHO Cells in the Genetic Study Drives the North America Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) Cells Market Growth

The increasing use of CHO cells in genetic studies reflects their unique advantages in the field of genetic research. CHO cells are renowned for their genetic stability. Researchers study specific genes or genetic modifications without the concern of unexpected genetic changes interfering with their experiments. This stability is particularly crucial when conducting precise gene editing or investigating the long-term effects of genetic modifications.

CHO cell's proficiency in expressing recombinant proteins is another compelling reason for their increasing use in genetic research. Researchers can introduce specific genes encoding proteins of interest into CHO cells. These cells then act as mini-bioreactors producing and secreting the desired proteins. This capability is essential for studying the functions of specific genes, investigating the effects of genetic mutations, and producing therapeutic-proteins for both research and biopharmaceutical applications.

Key Findings of the Study

North America Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) Cells Market

Growing Demand for Biopharmaceuticals

Biopharmaceuticals, also known as biologics, have demonstrated remarkable therapeutic outcomes in areas such as oncology, autoimmune diseases, and rare genetic disorders. For instance, monoclonal antibodies, a common type of biopharmaceutical, have transformed cancer treatment by targeting cancer cells directly while sparing healthy ones. biopharmaceuticals also offer promising approaches to managing previously untreatable conditions and rare diseases, which were often neglected by traditional drug development due to their limited patient populations.

The growing demand for biopharmaceuticals has a positive impact on the market, as CHO cells are a primary tool for the production of biopharmaceuticals. There is a corresponding rise in the requirement for CHO cells to produce these complex biological drugs as the biopharmaceutical industry expands to meet the increasing need for innovative and effective treatments.

Market Developments

  • In July 2023, Lonza launched TheraPRO CHO Media System, a new cell culture medium that simplifies processes and optimizes productivity and protein quality when using GS-CHO cell lines. The startup supports pharmaceutical and biotech companies producing therapeutic proteins to further improve product quality. The TheraPRO CHO Media System provides efficient performance, achieving high concentrations of viable cells and protein titers above 5 g/L over a 15-day culture period. This represents more than double the protein titer that can be produced with commercially available solutions. This launch has helped the company to expand its product portfolio in the market.
  • In July 2023, Merck announced that it is expanding its facility in Lenexa, Kansas, U.S., adding 9,100 square meters of laboratory space and production capacity for the production of cell culture media. This expansion makes Lenexa the company's largest dry powder cell culture facility and a center of excellence in North America. The investment in the region reflects the company's strategy to expand and diversify its supply chain to meet current and future demand for cell culture platforms.
  • In June 2023, Curia, a leading contract research, development, and manufacturing company announced that it has signed a license agreement with North American life sciences company MilliporeSigma, Merck KGaA in Darmstadt, Germany, which will allow Curia and its customers to use CHOZN.
