Comparison of growth factor purity and its implications for stem cell culture

Presentation by Luana Ferrara, Senior Protein Scientist Video script Slide 1: Introduction  Hello! My name is Luana Ferrara and I am a senior protein scientist at Qkine. In this short video, I’ll be presenting a comparative analysis of the purity of recombinant Activin A from different suppliers and highlighting why it's important to consider the biochemical quality of growth factors for your stem cell culture.   Slide 2: The role of [...]

Building next generation growth factors for organoid-driven precision medicine: a protein engineering project co-funded by Innovate UK

We were delighted to be awarded Innovate UK funding to address issues of quality and availability of growth factors for use in organoid technologies. The Qkine R&D team are applying a combination of protein expression, refolding optimisation and structure-guided protein engineering to improve the biological properties and quality of proteins such as R-spondins, TGFβ1, members of the BMP and FGF family proteins.
