New platform for culturing stem cells
Powerful new tool combines micro and nanotechnologies to precisely control stem cell culturing environment
A team led by Yong Chen and Kcn-ichiro Kamei of iCeMS has developed a new platform for culturing human pluripotent stem cells that provides far more control of culture conditions than previous tools by using micro and nanotechnologies.
The Multiplexed Artificial Cellular Microenvironment (MACME) array places nanofibers, mimicking cellular matrices, into fluid-filled micro-chambers of precise sizes, which mimic extracellular environments.
