Panasonic’s Direct Heat and Air Jacket ensure temperature reliability
In addition, Panasonic’s patented Direct Heat and Air Jacket ensure temperature reliability. Gentle fan circulation delivers uniform temperatures to all cultures in the chamber regardless of their position – a huge benefit during this project, when thousands of individual samples were being cultivated at once. The Panasonic H2O2 decontamination system, combined with InCu saFe® technology and SafeCell® UV lamp, ensures effective decontamination to safeguard cell lines.
Upmost levels of performance and security
“We are delighted that Panasonic has been able to play a role in this pioneering research,” said Jacqueline van der Zijden, Product Manager at Panasonic Biomedical. “All our incubators are specifically designed to deliver upmost levels of performance and security, and being able to supply these technologies to such an important project is very exciting.”
During the production of the synthetic burger, muscle stem cells were extracted from a sample of tissue taken from a cow’s shoulder. Satellite cells were then cultured, and then merged to create myotubes. 20,000 rings of tissue were then layered together to create the burger itself.
