BOTHELL, Wash., Nov. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BioLife Solutions, Inc. (NASDAQ: BLFS), a leading supplier of class-defining bioproduction tools and services for the cell and gene therapies ("CGT") and broader biopharma markets, today announced it has ranked 353 in the 27th annual Deloitte Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest-growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences, fintech, and energy tech companies in North America. BioLife Solutions annual revenue grew 336% from 2017 to 2020, driven by organic growth and several acquisitions that were completed to broaden its bioproduction product and services portfolio.
New market research suggests that the global cell and gene therapy clinical trials market size is forecasted to reach $45.4 billion by 2028, signifying the growth of therapeutic innovation in this class of drugs. As a result, the industry is experiencing a growing need for reliable solutions to de-risk and scale manufacturing, storage and distribution of high value biological material and the safe delivery of these therapies to patients.
Mike Rice, BioLife's Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are committed to serving our cell and gene therapy and biopharma customers as broadly as possible, by offering a growing portfolio of class-defining bioproduction products and services that can help accelerate and de-risk development and commercialization."
The key criteria to meet the 2021 Technology Fast 500™ companies list is revenue growth. For 2021, the companies that made the list had revenue growth ranging from 212% to 87,037% from 2017 to 2020, with median growth of 521%.
BioLife Solutions previously ranked on the Technology Fast 500™ list for 2020 and was also named one of the 100 Best Companies to work for in Washington State in 2013, 2015 and 2020.
