?Adventitious agents are microorganisms that have unintentionally introduced into the manufacturing of biological products. They mainly include fungi, mycoplasmas, rickettsia, protozoa, bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Adventitious agents testing is a process of detection by a combination of methods at various stages of biologics production. Adventitious agents are a major concern while using mammalian cell lines for the production of biologics. They are two types of testing methods namely Specific and Non-specific methods. In the Specific method, the adventitious agents are known e.g. PCR. In the Non-specific method, the adventitious agents are known and unknown, and it is subdivided into three types. A) In Vivo (Animals) b) In Vitro (Cell Cultures) c) Molecular/Biochemical. In In-vivo methods, various animal species are used, like a guinea pig, rabbits, adult mice and suckling mice, etc. In-Vivo methods are used because they detect viruses not readily possible with other systems. The in-vitro method is based on the ability of culture to grow a wide array of pathogens and also based on their extensive use in detection of human pathogens. Others Non-specific methods include Transmission Electron Microscopy and Reverse Transcriptase (RT) Assay for Retroviruses. (Source: FDA)

Adventitious Agent Testing Market: Drivers and Restraints

Rising concerns of contamination in biological products and the need for improvement of quality control measures for biologicals are drivers boosting the burgeoning growth of the adventitious agent testing market. Adventitious agent testing methods are continuously evolving and represent the improvement in technology, including throughput and sensitivity. These technological advancements have potential to support safe biologicals developments, all these factors boosting the growth of the adventitious agent testing market. Manufacturers of a large class biologicals products, including vaccines and cell therapy products, often require cell substrates from animal origin.  There is a high potential risk that cell substrates and raw materials of biologicals products can contaminated with adventitious agents. So, there is a high need for adventitious agent testing to assure quality and safety of biological substances. This demand fuels the growth of the adventitious agent testing market.

Evaluation of risk associated with new viruses by using present evolving technology limits the application of present adventitious agents testing. Issues in uses of assays and various national regulatory authorities harmonization act as a restraint on the growth of the adventitious agent testing market.
