Continous Production of Stem Cells

Continuous harvesting of OCT3/4 phentoype cells from a long term culture of human placenta-derived cells is possible using a FiberCell hollow fibre bioreactor.

When the harvested cells are transferred to flasks they differentiate into MSCs and generate spheroids.
