Method for preparing nk cells

A method for expanding nk cells includes the steps of expanding hematopoietic precursor cells under a single culturing condition using a medium supplemented with il-15, scf, il-7 and flt3l, and differentially inducing the cells obtained in the expanding step into nk cells under a culturing condition using a medium supplemented with il-2. A pharmaceutical composition contains the nk cells prepared by the method for expanding nk cells of the present invention.


Blood-cell producing bio-microreactor

The present disclosure provides devices composed of a three-dimensional biocompatible matrix having hematopoietic stem or other progenitor cells embedded in the matrix, and a perfusable microvessel forming a lumen disposed within the matrix. The devices are useful for production of blood and cells and particles and for in vitro assays.

Methods of obtaining cell populations enriched with desired cells

Provided is a method including providing a population of cells including a target type of differentiated cells having a pre-identified cytoskeletal profile and at least one cell selected from undifferentiated cells, differentiating cells and differentiated cells being different from the target type of differentiated cells; and incubating the population of cells with a cytotoxic agent, in an amount and for a time period effective to form a modified population of cells including predominantly or consisting essentially of the target type of differentiated cells. The pre-identified cytoskeletal profile can include the presence of class iii β-tubulin on neuronal cells and the population of cells includes neural cells and neuronal cells..
