StemCell Technologies Inc. Applauds Feeder-Free Derivation of Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells


9/14/2009 2:02:59 PM

VANCOUVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In a landmark paper, researchers at Stanford University have described a new way to derive human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) without the use of contaminating mouse feeder cells. Using adipose cells as the starting cell population and mTeSR™1, a defined medium that allows the expansion of human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells without the use of feeders, the researchers were able to fully reprogram the cells to the pluripotent state.
