STEMCELL Technologies Introduces AggreWell™400 for Standardized Embryonic Stem Cell and Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Research
Date:8/20/2008

STEMCELL Technologies' AggreWell™400 plate is a novel tool for standardizing the generation of uniform embryoid bodies.

Vancouver, British Columbia (PRWEB) August 20, 2008 -- http://www.stemcell.com [STEMCELL Technologies], a leader in specialty cell culture media, cell separation products and ancillary reagents for stem cell research, today announced the release of the AggreWell™400 plates, a revolutionary tool for researchers using embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells (ESC and iPSC).

"The AggreWell™400 plate standardizes a critical step in the development of embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells into clinically-relevant mature cells," says Clive Glover, Ph.D., STEMCELL Technologies' Product Manager for Pluripotent Stem Cell Biology. "These cells have been difficult to work with because of the lack of standardized methods to culture and differentiate them. The AggreWell™400 plate is the latest product in STEMCELL Technologies' portfolio that addresses the need for standardized methods and tools for stem cell research."

Many protocols for inducing the development ESC and iPSC into clinically relevant cell types rely on the formation of embryoid bodies (EBs), which are 3-dimensional aggregates of cells. In addition to being labor-intensive, current methods for making EBs results in aggregates that are inconsistent in size and shape, leading to inefficient differentiation.

In contrast, researchers using the AggreWell™400 plates are able to control the size of EBs, enabling them to optimize their differentiation protocols. Additionally the AggreWell™400 plates allow stem cell scientists to easily create large quantities of uniformly-sized EBs
