A short review on the establishment of hESC lines on LN-521. Authors state that they easily can establish and expand hESC lines in fully chemically defined animal substance-free conditions. hESC lines can be derived from single biopsied cells of embryos that need not be destroyed during the process. The genetic stability and differentiation capacity can be studied. These cell lines can today be safely expanded almost without limitations.
