Stem Cells / Regeneration

Within the field of regenerative medicine the basic characterization and differentiation of stem cells is of great importance. With the possibility to investigate cellular behavior and morphological changes, the Bionas DiscoveryTM 2500 system can be applied in stem cell research and as a tool for quality control to monitor the stability of stem cells.

Behaviour of stem cells (hMSCs) under hypoxic conditions

Fig. Stem cells and Hypoxia:

Acidification rate of three types of stem cells (origin - BM: bone marrow, CB: cord blood, LA: lipid aspirate). The acidification is increased when the oxygen content is decreased. Effects are strongest for BM and reversible for all cell types.
