Human Stem Cells

ZenBio, a pioneer in the adult stem cell field, delivers quality, cost-effective adipose-derived stem cells in large enough quantities to meet a wide range of project demands. Each lot is evaluated and qualified to remain undifferentiated in culture or to differentiate into osteoblasts, chondrocytes or adipocytes upon exposure to specific differentiation media formulations.

As interest grows in the expanding field of stem cell research, areas such as regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and basic stem cell biology necessitate a reliable cost-effective cell-based tool for use in discovery and design projects. Adipose-derived adult stem cells and their unique differentiation properties can be utilized in any number of research applications and offer decided benefits over similar multipotent cell types.

Adipose tissue is typically in greater supply enabling ample sourcing for isolation and production of adult stem cells – at a fraction of the cost for bone marrow-derived counterparts while maintaining similar markers and characteristics. Adult stem cells offer another more subtle benefit allowing scientists to circumvent the ethical issues normally associated with employing embryonic stem cells in biomedical research.

ZenBio adult stem cells are available with optimized media formulations to maximize growth, survival and differentiation in culture. All cells have been screened negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLC-1, HTLV-2, Hep-B, Hep-C, and mycoplama.
