Rather, it is the prohibitive cost of the frequent post-operative visits, the travel required, the medications and contact lenses used in follow up with the patients. For now, however, the devices ar...

Researchers devise way to mass-produce embryonic stem cells

... bioreactor used in this study is a tissue-growing device developed by Ohio State scientists. While this bioreactor could be used to produce adult stem cells, the researchers chose to look solely at embryonic stem cells for this experiment. "There's more of a demand for an unlimited supply of embryonic ste...

Polymers with copper show promise for implanted sensors
