From RNA-derived iPS Cells to Retinal Cells

Recent studies show that RNA Reprogramming using Stemgent's RNA Reprogramming technology yields high-quality iPS cells that can be used to develop physiologically relevant models for eye disease. These studies are the most comprehensive analysis to date of the derivation of functional retinal cells using iPS cells, and demonstrate the utility of human iPS cells from retinal disease modeling in general.

Get rid of FBS in your stem cell culture

The use of non-human growth supplements risks introducing animal viruses and proteins that can trigger immune and allergic responses and using human-derived supplements avoids these risks. 

Clearsate is a potent, high quality platelet lysate product developed by the San Diego Blood Bank as a human media supplement alternative to fetal bovine serum (FBS) or AB serum for cell expansion applications.

TECHNICAL CORNER

Cell culture models using 2D substrates have provided important conceptual advances in understanding the biology of cells. However, cells grown on flat 2D surfaces can differ substantially from physiological environments. Animal models provide a useful tool to study biology in a physiologically relevant environment but are expensive, time-consuming, use a significant amount of test material, and do not always provide a useful extrapolation to humans.

In this article, our expert looks at the key factors to consider when choosing your 3D culture system.
