With several blockbuster therapies (such as Humira®, Rituxan®, Lantus®, Avastin®, Herceptin® and Remicade®) and a robust pipeline of product/therapy candidates, the biopharmaceutical market is anticipated to witness significant growth in the next few years. However, it has been established that biologic drug development is a complex, time-consuming and capital-intensive process. These complex molecules require highly engineered specialized equipment, innovative downstream technologies, optimal storage and handling conditions, to ensure safety, efficacy and stability. In addition to the development of biologics, there remains a need to improve productivity, growth medium, process development and process optimization. Over time, a variety of advanced technologies and process analytical tools have been developed to accelerate the overall process. Traditionally, the process involves screening of cell lines in shake flask cultures, testing of successful candidates in bench-top bioreactors prior to pilot-scale studies. The need to carry out a large number of cell cultivations has resulted in the deployment of small-scale bioreactor systems, also known as minibioreactors, which can process culture volume ranging from 250 mL to 15 L and offer a high-throughput solution to process development. These minibioreactors allow scaling-down mammalian and microbial cell processes, scaling up the production by generating products in a more concentrated form. In addition, minibioreactors enable faster experimental throughput at relatively lower costs and allow parallel bioprocessing of samples, thereby reducing the downtime and increasing the number of batches produced in a given period of time.

Presently, more than 55 minibioreactors, developed by around 30 companies, are available for high-throughput media cultivation, process development and optimization. The stakeholders are taking several initiatives to incorporate a variety of features for monitoring of different control parameters, such as CO2 levels, dissolved oxygen, pH and temperature ranges, thereby allowing the users to analyze and determine essential conditions of the culture environment and optimize the overall performance. Further, the growing interest in precision medicine has also brought up the demand for small-scale production and fast turn-around time of such products. Driven by the growing biopharmaceutical pipeline, the need for efficient and faster process development and manufacturing solutions, the overall minibioreactors market and microbioreactors market is anticipated to witness steady growth in the coming years.
