By utilizing the results of a NEDO project, NIPRO Corporation has developed an automated cell culture system for stem cells called CELLAFORTE®.
The CELLAFORTE® system uses a NIPRO-designed culture bag that makes it possible to carry out the large-scale production of embryonic (ES) / induced pluripotent (iPS) cells or mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) efficiently in a closed environment with a reduced risk of contamination compared to open system containers such as dishes and flasks.
NIPRO Corporation will start accepting orders of build-to-order CELLAFORTE® for research use in regenerative medicine and other research areas from April 1, 2016.
