A team of researchers at Florida State University claimed to have designed a biomedical device that will allow stem cells derived from one adult bone marrow to be grown in sufficient quantities to permit far more research and allow faster growth of tissues that can be transplanted into patients. Teng Ma, an assistant professor of chemical and biomedical engineering, and colleagues have created a device called a perfusion bioreactor that is designed to mimic conditions encountered by adult stem cells within the human body. The reactor bathes stem cell samples in a protein-rich liquid while also simulating the flow of the body's circulatory system.
