This data is evident from the rising aging population and lack of effective treatments – a factor also underpinning the necessity to develop new assays to advance research to develop know-how with regard to mechanism of these diseases. Given the fact that both industrial and research concerns are demanding advanced & better cells for developing novel vaccines, biosimilars, drug, and therapeutic proteins it comes as no surprise that the global cell line development market has bright growth prospects. A conjecture substantiating the same is of a report compiled by Global Market Insights, Inc., that claims the global cell line development market to become a massive 7.5-billion-dollar industry by 2024, a substantial up from USD 2.9 billion in 2016.

When it comes to the vast utilization of the cell line development technology, Berkeley Lights Inc., is one protuberant industry magnate who has developed a platform to address the unmet research needs in Cellular Immuno-Oncology, BioPharma, and Autologous T-cell Therapies. Introduction of Beacon platform by this company has undeniably changed the overall competitive dynamics of cell line development industry. In fact, it has been observed that several other market players are leveraging Berkeley Lights’ state-of-the-art technology to further dive deeper into cell line research.

Impact of Berkeley Lights, Inc’s Beacon platform on the competitive landscape of cell line development market

According to reliable reports, Berkeley Lights, Inc. (BLI) launched its first commercial platform – Beacon™ OptoFluidic Platform in December 2016. This platform is ideally suited for direct B-cell antibody discovery and cell line development workflows. Experts deem that the flexibility of this platform has allowed researchers to automate biological processes and develop new applications to align with specific requirements. In short, the Beacon platform has enabled efficient monitoring, visualization, and tracking of cell to cell interaction and single cell manipulation across thousands of cells into a nanofluidic chip. As a result of this breakthrough technology, customers and other cell line development industry players could accelerate the delivery of actionable results and reduce hands-on time. Taking into account the Beacon platform’s ability to interact with cells in novel ways, BLI’s prominence in cell line development industry has indeed strengthened.

  • Leading biotechnology company Shire adopts BLI’s Beacon OptoFluidic platform

Recently in January 2018, BLI announced that Shire is implementing the Beacon Platform to accelerate their CLD process. Reports reveal that the company’s decision was based on an experiment and study that equated their existing cell line development workflow to the workflow results obtained using Beacon.

  • Daiichi Sankyo to work with BLI’s Beacon™ OptoFluidic

BLI in October 2017 announced that it will be working with the global pharmaceutical industry player Daiichi Sankyo to focus on creating CLD workflow efficiencies and fast tracking the drug development process. According to sources, the program includes evaluating and predicting the stability of clones, establishing monoclonality, and screening a pool of recently transfected CHO cells.

  • Pfizer to invests in mAb discovery with BLI’s Beacon tech

In a recent news snippet released in January 2018, it has been reported that Pfizer is leveraging BLI’s Beacon platform to advance its gene editing programs and monoclonal antibody discovery.

Other large pharma companies implementing Beacon technology

Teva Pharmaceuticals Australia, recently announced that it will be installing Beacon for its CLD and antibody discovery programs. Bayer Inc., is another in the line that has announced a strategic project with BLI to innovate and accelerate research. The pharmaceutical giant Novartis is also not far behind in implementing the Beacon platform. In fact, reports reveal it to be an earlier adopter of this technology and to consequently have secured its position in the dynamic cell line development market.

Overall a common thread that runs through all the aforementioned trends is BLI’s rising preeminence in the global cell line development industry. The flexibility of the Beacon platform has not only allowed BLI to strengthen its roots in this industry by continuously aligning with its partner’s requirements but has also significantly aided other emerging cell line development market players. What is noteworthy about these prospective trends is that they are deemed to be extremely important for other cell line development industry players in designing their growth tactics to sustain in the competitive terrain. For the record, other prominent companies partaking in cell line development industry share include GE Healthcare, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Lonza Group, Sigma-Aldrich, Sartorius AG, Progenitor Cell Therapy, LLC, and Samsung Biologics Co., Ltd.
