Recent advances in the field of stem cell biology have enabled the in vitro generation of complex 3D structures resembling whole organs, referred to as organoids. The remarkable self-organizing properties of embryonic and adult mammalian stem cells support organoid generation making organoids a promising model for the study of human disease and therapeutic intervention.

The advantages of organoids, to name a few, include

  • the near-physiological model system for basic and translational research,
  • organoids can be expanded indefinitely,
  • they have a capacity to cryopreserve and recover, easily manipulated using established 2D culture techniques (immunofluorescence staining, RNA expression quantification, WB and toxicity assays) and they are more amenable to manipulation of niche components,
  • signalling pathways and genome editing than in vivo models (Fatehullah et al., 2016).

The use of embryonic stem cells and induced PSC’s in generating organoids within an ECM is well established (Fatehullah et al., 2016). ATCC recently validated selected human iPSCs and R&D Systems reagents that support the generation and maintenance of gastrointestinal organoids. Read the ATCC Application Note.

In Vitro Technologies’ offer a complete work flow solution to accelerate research using stem cells in organoid generation:
