A partnership of researchers from Harvard University and Stanford University collaborated on an article in the July 2015 issue of Acta Biomaterialia. In the article, “Engineered composite fascia for stem cell therapy in tissue repair applications”, the scientists used our 1 kDa and 50 kDa Standard RC dialysis tubing to dialyze a collagen solution.

The object of the study was to engineer and evaluate a composite for effective restoration of “large soft tissue defects caused by trauma or treatment complications”. The resulting composite effectively adhered and prevented further trauma by hernia in rats over an 8-week period.

Abstract: A critical challenge in tissue regeneration is to develop constructs that effectively integrate with the host tissue. Here, we describe a composite, laser micromachined, collagen–alginate construct containing human mesenchymal stem cells (hMSCs) for tissue repair applications. Click here to read the article.

 

Standard Grade Regenerated Cellulose (RC) is a clear, flexible and sturdy dialysis membrane with a “looser” molecular selectivity. This economical membrane is ideal for a broad range of applications in which there is a significant size difference between the MW species being separated.

Large-volume Process Dialysis is an emerging technology driven by the increasing demand for gentle and consistent multi-batch purification at the production scale. We offer dialysis membrane and large volume dynamic flow equipment designed specifically for process dialysis, as well as small volume devices to make sample analysis easy.
