Application in the production of stem cell lines.
Stem cells have the unique capability of generating almost any cell in the body, and may be able to repair or replace cells that are damaged. However, they are one of the most difficult mammalian cells to grow, maintain and purify. One key challenges is separating embryonic stem cells from microcarriers. 3M Purification has been successful in this application, as well others needed to process stem cells.
The following table outlines 3M Purification solutions for various process steps.
