A technique which revolutionizes cell culture by allowing the continuous production and collection of cells, has been developed by scientists at Newcastle University.
The process removes the limit on the number of cells that can be grown in a culture dish, which until now has been strictly confined by its surface area.
The research published in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces reports how the Newcastle team have developed a coating that allows individual stromal cells to “peel away” from the surface on which they are grown. This creates more space so that further cells can grow in their place — continuously. The team has also demonstrated that the process works across a range of stromal cells including mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs).
