  • Others

The top three revenue-generating sample segments in the global biobanking market are discussed below:

Human tissues and tumor cells

There is a growing demand for specific and healthy human tissues in biomarker discovery and drug development process. The usage of human tissues in drug development and clinical trials is allowing a more accurate prediction of patient variability and clinical efficacy, thereby driving the growth of the market segment,” says Barath palada, a lead analyst at Technavio for life science research tools research.

The use of human tissue in the drug development process allows for the accurate establishment of disease phenotype and drug efficacy in the target tissue. This market segment dominated the global biobanking market, occupying 63% of the overall shares.


Bio-fluids include whole blood, serum, plasma, sweat, and sputum. Many biobanks use whole blood for preserving DNA, RNA, stem cells, and cord cells. Biobanks preserving stem cells and cord blood use customized and automated equipment for handling the samples. Most biofluids need to be stored at -20° C in cryobanks and analyzed at regular intervals – 180 days for both plasma and urine and 120 days for saliva. Forensic laboratories store and use these samples for up to a year during crime investigations. The varied uses and unique storage requirement of bio-fluids will create a high amount of revenue for the market segment.

Stem cells

Stem cells are a key component in regenerative medicine since they can be used in tissue regeneration, targeted cell therapy, and pharmacological testing on cells and tissues. Biobanks keep stem cells for long durations through different platforms to develop therapies for chronic ailments and research purpose,” says Barath.

The stem cell biobanking market is growing at a significant pace, driven by increasing investments in R&D and the rising incidences of degenerative diseases. Leading vendors have increased their R&D investments to develop innovative medical therapies, thereby driving the growth of the market.
