3D Magnetic Stir and Disposable Bioreactor System for Stem Cell Culture
Growth of iPS cells in spheroid suspension culture (3D) closely resemble embryoid body structures naturally formed by embryonic stem cells. This 3D growth format offers improved yield, viability and high efficiency for the expansion of human iPS stem cells and differentiation in a cost-effective format. The ABLE 3D Magnetic Stir and Disposable Bioreactor System enables stem cell researchers to utilize a 30mL bioreactor vessel for cell culturing or production of up to 5 × 107 cells per vessel, equivalent to approximately ten 10cm plates.
The ABLE 3D System has only two components; a six-channel magnetic stirrer platform (left), an electrical controller unit (right). The system is placed inside a CO2 cell culture incubator allowing the temperature, humidity and gas controls to be passively managed. The controller unit attaches magnetically to the outside of the incubator and the two system components are connected via a cable (not shown).
A delta-wing-shaped impeller with a magnet on each blade located within the bioreactor provides low-shear agitation, encouraging the formation and growth of uniform spheroid cell clusters. The bioreactor allows for the flexibility of using seed stock from single-cell suspensions of iPS stem cells, passaged colony fragments, or mini-spheroids generated from low-adherence cell culture dishes or multi-well plates.
