Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells found among specialised or differentiated cells in a tissue or organ after birth. They appear to posess a limited ability to produce different cell types and to self-renew, different from embryonic stem cells.

In addition to the already offered products for isolation and characterisation of stem cells, provitro extends its portfolio with new culture media for proliferation and differentiation of stem cells developed and optimised by our academic partners, the Tissue Engineering Laboratories at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin.
Our different new differentiation media are developed to induce:
