Cellnest will join Fujifilm Irvine Scientific’s PRIME-XV portfolio which consists of xeno-free and chemically defined media for stem cell culture.

Fujifilm Irvine Scientific announced on Sept. 29, 2020 that it has become a worldwide distributor of cellnest, a recombinant peptide attachment substrate for optimal adhesion and proliferation of stem cells in chemically defined, animal-component-free conditions.

Designed and manufactured by Fujifilm Corporation, cellnest can work in conjunction with any adherent cell type that attaches to the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) domain, an amino acid sequence within the extracellular matrix protein fibronectin that facilitates cell binding, a company press release said. Cellnest will join Fujifilm Irvine Scientific’s PRIME-XV portfolio which consists of xeno-free and chemically defined media for stem cell culture.
