Muscle progenitor stem cells in 3D maintain character after expansion in Mimetix scaffolds
CD133+ progenitor stem cells were shown to maintain ‘stem-ness’ after expansion in Mimetix 3D cell culture. In a recent publication in the Journal of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering, researchers at KTH in Sweden characterised the growth and differentiation of CD133+ stem cells in Mimetix 3D and in conventional 2D cell culture. CD133+ cells are myogenic progenitors… Read more »
3D X-Ray Nanotomography of cells grown in Mimetix scaffolds
A publication by Robert S. Bradley, Ian K. Robinson and Mohammed Yusuf in Macromolecular Bioscience demonstrates that X-ray nanotomography with Zernike phase contrast can be used for 3D imaging of cells grown on electrospun polymer scaffolds. The scaffold fibers and cells are simultaneously imaged, enabling the influence of scaffold architecture on cell location and morphology… Read more »
