A Novel Method for the Expansion of Mesenchymal Stem Cells using a New Brunswick™ S41i CO2 Incubator Shaker
12 Jan 2015
The expansion of stem cells, including mesenchymal stem cells (MSC), has been successfully demonstrated using microcarrier-based small bioreactors such as spinner flasks. This study explored a simple alternative for microcarrier-based MSC expansion using conventional shake flasks. This method relies on a new type of CO2 incubator with built-in shaking capability, i.e. New Brunswick S41i CO2 Incubator Shaker.
