Organoids And Spheroids Market

Moreover, the surge in technological advancement in 3D spheroids technologies is expected to boost the market growth. For instance, in July 2023, Molecular Devices, LLC., a leading high-performance life science solutions provider, continues industrializing biology with its organoid line expansion services to support next-generation drug discovery. The offering leverages proprietary bioreactor and bioprocess technology to scale up the production of standardized, assay-ready organoids originating from customer-supplied organoid lines or patient-derived xenografts (PDX).

Organoids are complex, self-organizing structures derived from stem cells or tissue-specific progenitor cells. Organoids can be generated from various cells and including pluripotent stem cells or adult tissue-specific stem cells and can recapitulate the cellular diversity and spatial organization found in native tissues. Spheroids are simple aggregates of cells that form rounded, 3D structures in culture. Unlike organoids, which aim to replicate the structural and functional complexity of specific tissues or organs, spheroids are often composed of one or more cell types and lack the tissue-specific organization seen in organoids.

Organoids and Spheroids Market Trends

  • Technological advancements in 3D spheroid culture are instrumental in propelling the growth of the market. Cutting-edge techniques such as microfluidics and bioprinting enable precise control over the spatial organization of cells within spheroids, resulting in more complex and physiologically relevant structures.
  • In addition, advanced imaging technologies allow high-resolution visualization and analysis of spheroid morphology and dynamics, facilitating high-content screening for drug discovery and toxicity testing.
  • Moreover, integration of multi-omics approaches with 3D spheroid cultures provides comprehensive insights into cellular phenotypes and drug responses. For instance, in June 2021 Corning Incorporated announced the launch of HepGo Assay-ready 3D liver spheroid kit, the first plug-and-play solution to include 96 pre-plated primary human hepatocyte (PHH) spheroids in a single-spheroid microplate (one uniform spheroid per well) and HepGo Hepatocyte companion cell culture media. The kit provides a convenient way for customers to use 3D PHH liver spheroids for various applications, including hepatotoxicity assays. This streamlines the process by minimizing manual steps and reducing potential errors, that boosts the growth of the market.
