May 23, 2016
KIBBUTZ BEIT HAEMEK, Israel & CROMWELL, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Biological Industries (“BI”; www.bioind.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of cell culture media, molecular biology tools, human cytogenetics media, and custom media manufacturing services, is participating and making a poster presentation at ISCT 2016, the annual meeting of the International Society for Cellular Therapy, 25-28 May, in Singapore. The poster presentation, “A Novel Set of Serum-Free, Xeno-Free Differentiation Media for Adipogenesis, Osteogenesis and Chondrogenesis of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Various Tissue Sources,” will be presented by BI’s R&D Product Manager, Mira Genser-Nir, Ph.D.
- Abstract Number: 205
- Presentation Title: A Novel Set of Serum-Free, Xeno-Free Differentiation Media for Adipogenesis, Osteogenesis and Chondrogenesis of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells from Various Tissue Sources
- The poster will be available for the duration of the conference
“Human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) are multipotent adult stem cells that can be isolated from various tissues as well as generated in vitro from hESCs and iPS cells,” observed Dr. Genser-Nir. “In order for hMSCs to become the cells of choice for use in regenerative medicine and drug screening, the culture conditions must be improved and differentiation potential is required. We feel that this paper represents a big step toward addressing these issues.”
BI will also have a booth at the conference, #C07-C09.
