Development of High Quality MSC and NSC for Human Disease Research
21 August 2013
Quality and functionality of adult stem cells used in human disease research vary considerably due to non-standardized cell derivation protocols. Considerable variance exists with donor source, tissue processing, primary cultivation, and potency, and can generate results that are difficult to replicate and lead to inconclusive findings. In this scientific poster various approaches to optimize production of consistent lots of highly purified, rapidly expanding primitive adult stem cells under cGMP conditions that can be utilized as a cell standard or in disease research were tested.
