FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific to Exclusively Distribute Chemically Defined Substrate for Stem Cell Culture
Cellnest substrate enables optimal adhesion and proliferation of stem cells for cell and gene therapy research
FUJIFILM Irvine Scientific, Inc., today announced that it has become the exclusive, worldwide distributor of cellnest®, a recombinant peptide attachment substrate that provides optimal adhesion and proliferation of stem cells in chemically defined, animal component-free conditions. Cellnest was designed and manufactured by FUJIFILM Corporation, joining its vast portfolio of solutions that support life science applications and therapeutic innovation.
Attachment substrates mimic the extracellular matrix (ECM), a complex and dynamic environment in which cells reside in vivo, in cell culture and allow for the adhesion, expansion, and potential differentiation of stem cells. Unlike animal-derived components, which can introduce unpredictability in results, the chemically defined, animal component-free formula of cellnest provides consistent results to researchers, and can smooth the regulatory path to commercialization. Cellnest is compatible with any adherent cell type that binds
