Human AB serum is used in tissue engineering, transplantation and cell therapy applications for the expansion of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) from adipose tissue or mesenchymal stromal cells from human bone marrow; for standardized limbal epithelial stem cell graft generation and transplantation; for ex vivo expansion of NK cells from peripheral blood in Hematopoeitic Stem Cell Expansion Medium; and for upgrading pretransplant human islet culture technology.
