Greiner Bio-One Supplies Laboratory Products for Stem Cell Burger

Production of the first stem cell burger, which recently hit the headlines throughout the world, also owes its success to high-quality laboratory products from Greiner Bio-One.

The technology partner for the diagnostic and pharmaceutical industries contributed premium-grade laboratory materials for the development process.

For the first time, scientists from Maastricht University in the Netherlands have succeeded in cultivating a hamburger in a laboratory from the stem cells of cattle. The stem cells can be extracted from muscle cells, for example. The stem cells from a single cow can be used to produce around 200 million burgers. Industrial production, it is hoped, could act as a significant brake on intensive livestock farming and thus also curb environmental pollution.

Yet as stem cells are particularly sensitive, cultivating them is highly complex. The cells need an ambient temperature of 37 °C and must be protected against bacteria and fungi continuously. That’s why it is all the more important that the laboratory products used such as multiwell plates, cell culture flasks and pipettes from Greiner Bio-One, as utilised for this project, meet the strictest requirements. “The fact that such an elaborate and complicated project is carried out with our products demonstrates our customer’s confidence in the quality,” explains Managing Director Heinz Schmid. Thanks to its many years of experience as a laboratory product manufacturer, Greiner Bio-One is able to comply with all required product standards and guarantee such compliance. All laboratory materials are available in various sizes and versions. They are versatile and can also be employed for highly complex purposes such as stem cell research.
