Researchers devise way to mass-produce embryonic stem cells

... traditional cell culturing methods can't meet the projected high market demand for stem cells," Yang said. He and Anli Ouyang, a doctoral student in chemical engineering, grew mouse embryonic stem cells in a bioreactor. Cell growth increased 193-fold in 15 days. At the end of that period, cell density ?the n...
