hMSCs+Petaka=Excellent SC Cultures

I have been promoting the capabilities of our new PetakaTM Cell Culturing Systems. My confidence that you will be delighted with these capabilities is based, in part, on the success Dr. Jim Musick, CEO, Vitro Biopharma had culturing our UCB derived Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells.
These cells work "hand in glove" with Petaka. The system enabled Jim to:
  • Culture the cells with out the addition of CO2 or humidity (no environmental dehydration)-no incubator required.
  • Use less growth media
  • Drive the cells into dormancy enabling them to be maintaned, shipped and stored at Room Temperature.

Petaka means better cultures at a lower cost. I will continue to post new data confirming this here.
