Product News: Tools and Equipment for Cell Culture: ISSCR Stem Cell Focus

06 Jun 2011

In addition to being a global leader in consumable glass and plastic laboratory tools for life science research, Corning continues to lead the way in Cell Culture innovation with the development and production of the HYPERFlask® Cell Culture Vessel for increased cell yields, and novel surfaces such as our Ultra-Low Attachment Surface for spheroid and tumor culture, Osteo Assay Surface for osteogenesis research, the Corning CellBIND® Surface for enhanced assay performance, and our most recent animal-free Corning Synthemax™ Surface for stem cell culture.

Use of a Novel Synthetic Surface for the Derivation, Proliferation and Differentiation of iPS Cells and Their Progeny

We describe the use of the Corning Synthemax Surface to support mouse and human iPS cells during reprogramming and proliferation stages, as well as through the process of differentiation into retinal neurons. Compared to extracellular matrix-coated surfaces, plating on the Corning Synthemax Surface resulted in enhanced cellular adhesion. The Corning Synthemax Surface provides an ideal surface for the xeno-free production, culture, and differentiation of adult mouse and human fibroblast derived iPSCs. These findings demonstrate the potential utility of this surface for the production of clinical grade retinal neurons for transplantation and induction of retinal regeneration.
