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.

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.
