The second annual conference on Scale-Up and Manufacturing of Cell-Based Therapies is scheduled for
Pluripotent stem cells such as human embryonic stem and induced pluripotent stem cells have attracted a great deal of attention in the research community and pharmaceutical industry as a potential means of manufacturing a wide array of novel cell-based therapies where cells, as opposed to drugs, are introduced into the body to regenerate tissue function. However, since these new and powerful stem cells become all of the cell types in the human body, methods to reliably scale up only particular and desired cell types from the stem cells without contamination from other undesired cell types are of significant interest. BioTime’s solution is a proprietary PureStemTM technology that generates monoclonal lines of over 200 defined human embryonic progenitor cell types from human embryonic stem cells. This technology allows desired cell types such as cartilage, bone, tendon, vascular cells, and many other cell types to be manufactured on an industrial scale while maintaining a high degree of purity and certainty of cellular identity.
