Millipore, Thermo Fisher Scientific

Millipore this week announced the availability of its MilliTrace primary rodent neural stem cell lines that constitutively express green fluorescent protein. The company said that the MilliTrace cell lines are the first commercially available, GFP-expressing, karyotypically normal stem cell lines, and are supplied with optimized expansion medium.
MilliTrace GFP Reporter Neural Stem Cell Lines are validated for high levels of GFP expression, stem cell marker expression, and multipotency.

Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the Thermo Scientific HyClone AdvanceSTEM amniotic epithelial expansion kit and human amniotic epithelial stem cells.
The AdvanceSTEM kit is tested and validated for the expansion of HAE cells. By using this medium, researchers are able to reduce additional testing, the company said.

The products are part of the Thermo Scientific Stem Cell Excellence portfolio, an end-to-end workflow solution that incorporates instruments, equipment, consumables, reagents, and media, in addition to services and software tailored to the needs of stem-cell laboratories.
