Growing swarms of bacteria?

22-May-2017 | Zion Market Research

What is actually a microbiological culture? Microbiology is basically the study of microorganisms. The microorganisms are tiny living organisms that are impossible to site using the naked eye. However, a microscope can help in visualizing the microorganisms such as bacteria or yeast. Microorganisms are of two types, the gram negative and gram positive, based on their cell wall and internal structures. These bacteria can be harmful or beneficial based on their nature. Hence, in order to carry out research on these small creatures, there is a demand for growing these in large numbers instead of carrying out the study on a single organism. The researchers used various cultural media, based on the type of microorganism, to culture these tiny organisms. The continuous culturing of the microorganisms for research purpose is major factor propelling the growth of the global microbiological culture market.

If a single bacterial culture is grown in a media then it is known as the pure culture whereas in case of more bacteria it is called as mixed culture. Generally, the microbial culture is divided into two types, that is, the bacterial culture and the eukaryotic culture. The bacterial culture can further be categorized into agar culture, broth culture, and stab culture. The microbiological culture can be bifurcated based on the media type such as complex media, simple media, special media, and synthetic media.

Some of the well-known culture collection centers in the various regions include Amercian Type Culture Collection, Japan Collection of Microorganisms, Collection d’institut Pasteur, International Collection of Microorganisms from Plants, Belgium Coordinated Collection of Microorganisms, and Deutsche Sammlung von Mikroorganismen and Zellkuturen. In addition to this, some of the prominent players ruling the global market include Scharlab S.L., Eiken Chemical Co. Ltd., Becton, Neogen Corporation, LLC, Sigma-Aldrich Co., Dickinson and Company, and Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc.

Generally, the rising microbial infection across the globe and the need for antibiotics to curb the infection are the factors mostly driving the global market towards the growth. However, the high cost of the antibiotics, in turn, restrains the growth of the market. It is still possible for the global microbiological market to flourish due to the increasing research and development in the microbial field.
