Fireside chat at World Organoid Research Day

World Organoid Research Day

Yesterday was World Organoid Research Day which we celebrated in our new premises. We hosted a series of speakers and discussions between academic and industrial researchers and suppliers in the field. We were very fortunate to be joined by Dr Hassan Rashidi, University College London, and Dr Lindsey Edwards, Kings College London, who gave excellent talks and participated in our fireside chat on ‘The impact of organoids on future research’. We’ll soon be releasing the videos of all the talks on our website and will share them when they are available.

FGF-8b bioactivity assay

FGF-8a and FGF-8b now available

We have launched FGF-8a and FGF-8b as part of our neural stem cell range. Manufactured in our Cambridge facility, these recombinant proteins are animal-free and highly bioactive. FGF-8a and FGF-8b play a key role in the regulation of embryogenesis, cellular proliferation, differentiation, and migration.
