March 2015
SHARING OPTIONS:

STEVENAGE, U.K.—Plasticell got a boost in early February with a grant of approximately £1.3 million (roughly $1.5 million) from Innovate UK. The grant is for a research consortium—one led by Plasticell that also includes the University of Oxford and the Cell Therapy Catapult—for a project titled “Ex-vivo expansion of cord blood and bone marrow stem cells.” Plasticell’s CombiCult has been tested with millions of combinations of cell culture components to develop cord blood expansion media that can amplify stem cells up to a hundredfold, and the grant will enable the development of a clinically compliant process to expand cord blood stem cells ex vivo via Plasticell’s media.
 
“Using CombiCult, our team of stem cell scientists is successfully tackling some of the most difficult problems in regenerative medicine, as is demonstrated by the development of highly effective cord blood expansion media,” said Dennis Saw, Plasticell’s chief executive.
