The stem cell field has advanced significantly over the past few decades, and most indications are that it will continue to do so at an ever-increasing pace. As more and more of these discoveries turn into potential therapies, scientists need to overcome challenges to transition these unique cells from laboratory conditions into commercial production. Traditional thinking around commercial production tends towards suspension culture, primarily based on the success of therapeutic protein manufacturing. However, stem cell therapies are significantly more complex. They require more sophisticated manufacturing platforms, and there is not always a one-size-fits all option. Many important considerations need to go into choosing the correct upstream manufacturing platforms including: biological compatibility, cost, time, labor, and analytics. This talk will cover some of these key considerations, as well as provide guidance for choosing the right platform to meet specific stem cell therapy production goals.
