Patient-derived tumor organoids recapitulated clinical treatments

The pharmaceutical industry suffers from very high rates of clinical failure, because preclinical predictions of efficacy often fail to realize a clinical benefit. In part, this can be attributed to an over-reliance on animal models of efficacy, which often do not fully predict human responses to drugs. Two areas where very few predictive models are available is inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)—which includes ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease—and gastrointestinal cancer—specifically cancer of the small intestine and the colon. REPROCELL has set out to solve these challenges by developing new preclinical tests based on human tissues.

Five reasons to choose StemRNA 3rd Gen reprogramming

[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 2, 2018 10:07:01 AM / by Anca Haralambie posted in iPSC Reprogramming, Drug Discovery, Stem Cells

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

RNA Reprogramming is used globally for the generation of integration-free induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) by researchers in biotech, academia, research hospitals and government agencies. This reprogramming method is gaining more and more interest and core labs and biotech companies focusing on regenerative medicine and GMP compatibility are adopting this technology and make it their standard.

3D cell culture. You've heard about it, you've read about it. You're probably daunted by the plethora of techniques available out there, but you want to join the growing number of scientists publishing in the 3D field or you hope it will make your drug discovery pipeline more effective.

But how should you do it? What's the best for your cells?

Cost Effective, Lab-scale iPS Cell Spheroid Culture

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 9, 2018 10:40:47 AM / by Robert Annand posted in 3D Cell Culture, Stem Cells

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Many stem cell projects expand to a point where standard culture methods—plates, dishes, flasks, etc.—no longer yield sufficient cells to meet the growing needs for differentiation and regenerative medicine. At this point, larger scale options are required. Traditional bioreactors provide large volume cell culture of liters to hundreds of liters, but they are expensive to buy and expensive to operate. New small scale bioreactors fill the niche between these two extremes perfectly, providing increased cell production over plates or dishes, while being cost-effective to buy and operate.

Xeno-free culture of pluripotent stem cells in NutriStem® hPSC XF medium

[fa icon="calendar'] Feb 5, 2018 5:58:00 AM / by Robert Annand posted in Drug Discovery, Human Tissues, Stem Cells

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Pluripotent stem cells (PSCs), such as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), are a key component of the growing field of regenerative medicine. Use of culture conditions free of animal products (xeno-free) is essential for PSC projects that are destined for the clinic. NutriStem hPSC XF medium (01-0005) and iMatrix-511 recombinant human laminin-511 E8 fragments (NP8920911) form an ideal system for xeno-free, feeder culture of human PSCs.

The SMi Group’s conference on 3D Cell Culture will be held on 21-22 February 2018. The venue is the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington, London, UK.

 Find out more at

REPROCELL Europe’s CSO Professor Stefan Przyborski will chair the first day of the conference.

From the Conference Overview:

Building on the sell-out success of the launch event, SMi Group is delighted to announce the return of 3D Cell Culture, taking place on 21st and 22nd of February 2018, in London UK.
Whilst still in its infancy, 3D Cell Culture is rapidly growing with not only a widespread reach that can be seen across a number of different fields such as 3D bioprinting and microfluidics, but also with incredible potential for industrial application. The 2nd annual conference will explore these overlapping areas and will also update delegates on pioneering developments in surrounding topics such as disease models, organoids, organ-on-a-chip technologies and iPSC advances.
