Stem Cell Growth Matrices with Enhanced Homogeneity, Stemness & Proliferation and Reduced Need for Feeding
Invention Summary: There is currently no universal platform or widely accepted technique to efficiently and reproducibly grow stem and progenitor cells (SPCs) in vitro. Stem cells require contact with extracellular matrices as well as signals from growth factors to proliferate and to retain their stemness (preventing their differentiation towards progenitors)....
