The Next Evolution in Cell Culture

We are delighted to sponsor a series of free seminars by our partners StemBioSys on CELLvo™ technology which is a licensed proprietary technology for the enhanced capture, growth and delivery of stem cells for research, diagnostic and therapeutic applications.

Seminar Synopsis

Development and Application of Cell – Derived Matrices for Biologically Relevant Cell Culture
Presented by Travis Block, PhD, StemBioSys Principle Scientist

Despite overwhelming evidence demonstrating the important role of the extracellular matrix in regulating cell behavior, traditional cell culture strategies do little to recreate a natural microenvironment. Presently, standard culture conditions inevitably lead to phenotypic drift, spontaneous differentiation, replicative senescence, and aberrant phenotypes that are unlike those found in the body. This may lead to experimental artifact in basic research or suboptimal clinical outcomes in translational research. To address this challenge, we focused our efforts on developing in vitro culture substrates that closely mimic natural microenvironments. Here we describe the development of scale-able, tissue-specific, cell-derived extracellular matrices for cell culture, and their applications in basic and translation research.

At StemBioSys® all the cells are sourced from young, healthy tissue to ensure customers have access to high quality cells.

Cells available include Bone Marrow, Adipose-Derived, and Wharton’s Jelly MSCs, Cord Blood Endothelial Progenitor Cells, and Chondrocytes from Articular Cartilage.
