GMP Complaint Formulations Overcome Shortcomings of DMSO in Cell Culture

The blood thawing system market is projected to reach ~US$ 400 Mn by 2030 during the forecast period. However, it has become important for companies to overcome cryopreservation challenges. Issues in cell culture processes are affecting advancements in cryopreservation techniques. Thus, serum-free and chemically defined formulations are replacing DMSO (Dimethyl Sulfoxide) in cryopreservation processes.

The residual DMSO is posing as a challenge in cryopreservation for cell culture, owing to its toxicity. Hence, companies in the blood thawing system market are increasing awareness about GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) complaint formulations that have the potential to be less harmful for cell culture.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Addressing the entire transfusion chain from the donor to patient has become necessary during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. With the help of innovative dry plasma thawing products, users can select presets to thaw and transform frozen plasma for immediate use. Even though DMSO is the standard protocol for cryopreservation processes, it is subject to issues for processes in 3D tissues or organoids in vitrification and devitrification applications. Hence, companies in the blood thawing system market should explore hydrogel systems as conduits for cryopreservation. The GMP ready cryochain hardware and software are being built for reliability and traceability in umbilical cord blood processing. Researchers are developing protocols that enable on-demand thawing and reduce the need for continuous blood manufacturing.
