Thermo Fisher launches new adipogenic differentiation tools

27th February 2008

Thermo Fisher has announced the launch of new products to support differentiation of stem-cell lines for both research and therapeutic applications.

According to the firm, the new product brings together its Thermo Scientific AdvanceSTEM Adipogenic Differentiation kit and human bone marrow mesenchymal and adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells.

The kit was designed to provide support for the differentiation of cells into adipocytes that can be used as part of studies of metabolic dysfunction and fat gain.

Alain Fairbank, research market manager for bioprocess production at Thermo Fisher Scientific, said: "The kit takes the guesswork out of differentiation and saves valuable time in research and development of adipocytes."

Scientists can "accelerate" work that will be of benefit to those with diseases or injuries, he added.

In related news, Thermo Fisher recently announced that its RNA-interference technology was used as part of a study conducted by Harvard Medical School in Boston.

Researchers were able to discover the human proteins that are integral to the growth of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
