Stem cell culture in coated scaffolds

A simple 3-D culture system, made of electrospun polycaprolactone (PCL) fibers and coated with defined extracellular proteins that occur naturally in the stem cell niche, allowed dispersed attachment and culture of human pluripotent stem cells devoid of cell aggregation. A publication from The Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm describes how PCL fiber scaffolds coated… Read more »
