New Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells

Neuromics' is responding to growing demand for Stem Cell Research Reagents.

This includes the addition of human stem cells giving researchers the ability to create consistent cultures of primary cells. Our first offering was STEMEZ TM hNP1 Human Neural Progenitors. We have received positive feedback on these regarding ease of use and quality.

We are pleased to announce the addition of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells.

They are isolated from human adult pancreas and can be induced to differentiate into beta-cells, which is a significant product in the diabetes research area. MSCs to Beta Cells Protocol.

This is extremely important due to the low yield of islets from patients/donors. These cells could be a functional equivalent to normal beta-cells and could restore proper endocrine function to the pancreas.

In addition, protocols are available to differentiate these cells into osteocytes, adipocytes, chondrocytes and hepatocytes.

We will keep you posted on customer results with this important new product.
