News Nov 07, 2007
Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. has announced that on November 1, 2007, the Company was granted a Biologics license (License) from the Department of Health Services of the State of California.
This License permits the Company’s current facility to accept and store cord blood (Stem Cells), whole blood, and various blood related specimens for cryogenic short and long term storage.
In addition, the Company intends to apply to the Department of Health Services of the State of California for a Tissue Bank License which will permit the Company to process stem cells from all sources (including adipose tissue derived stem cells).
Scientists have used machine learning to train computers to see parts of the cell the human eye cannot easily distinguish. Using 3D images of fluorescently labeled cells, the research team taught computers to find structures inside living cells without fluorescent labels, using only black and white images generated by an inexpensive technique known as brightfield microscopy.READ MORE
