Since the turn of the century, stem cell technology has delivered on its promise to transform the healthcare industry, while its applications across different sectors have continued to emerge. Bioreactors, offering improved process control as well as scalability, have been adopted worldwide for stem cell production and cultivation. Join us as we dive into the world of lab-grown meat to see how stem cells are set to revolutionize the food industry as well.
Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the intrinsic capacity to self-renew, that is, to divide and develop into different types of cells. Since its discovery in the 1960s, stem cell technology has harnessed the power of stem cells to solve problems in the field of medicine.
The science behind stem cells and their versatile applications
In humans, stem cells are the basic anchor cells out of which all cells in the body originate. They have varying abilities to differentiate into specialized cell types, a characteristic known as potency. Stem cells can be categorized into three types based on their potency.
