In this article Shweta Sharma, PhD, discusses the potential of an Umbilical Cord Blood bank as an untapped source of samples for research and clinical trials.
The Life Story of Stem Cells
A model analyses the development of stem cell numbers in the human body.
Novel Stem Cell Line Avoids Risk of Introducing Transplanted Tumors
Progenitor cells might eventually be used to repair or rebuild damaged or destroyed organs.
Advancing Genome Editing of Blood Stem Cells
Genome editing techniques for blood stem cells just got better, thanks to a team of researchers at USC and Sangamo BioSciences.
Molecule Proves Key to Brain Repair After Stroke
Scientists found that a molecule known as growth and differentiation factor 10 (GDF10) plays a key role in repair mechanisms following stroke.
Towards Patient-Specific Drug Screening
A new breakthrough by the 3D stem cell printing team at Heriot-Watt could pave the way to individually tailored drug testing regimes, both reducing the need for animal testing and ensuring that patients receive drugs which are most effective for their individual needs.
Gene-Edited Immune Cells Treat ‘Incurable’ Leukaemia
A new treatment that uses ‘molecular scissors’ to edit genes and create designer immune cells programmed to hunt out and kill drug resistant leukaemia has been used at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).

Stem cell research: Creating blood for high throughput screening

Tecan Group Ltd.

Currently, differentiation of either human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) relies on the use of serum or co-culturing on feeder cell lines. Manual maintenance and differentiation of hESCs or iPSCs is technically challenging, labor-intensive and subject to inherent process variability, and is therefore not a viable long-term solution for scaling up the production of stem cells. 

Cellular Dynamics International has developed an automated method to produce industrial quantities of stem cells, and their derivatives, to address the needs of the market. This application note describes a highly efficient, serum-free, feeder-free automated system for production of iPSCs, and their differentiation into hematopoietic precursor cells (HPCs).
