In terms of using this in drug discovery/testing, how difficult would it be for a team of cell culture scientists with minimal experience in working with stem cells to get this up and running?
This question is part of the following Ask The Expert session:
Using Intestinal Organoids for Intestinal and Stem Cell Research
Company: STEMCELL Technologies Inc.
Job Title: Senior Scientist
Both the detailed procedure and IntestiCult™ Organoid Growth Medium (Mouse) have been designed with that thought in mind. The step-by-step manual is easy to follow and the robustness of the medium allows for a bit of a “learning curve”. Although mastering any new skill takes some practice, the time to get “up and running” with organoid cultures should be very quick, and usually achievable during the first attempt. Good luck!
