Cells from this sample can be immortilised, allowing them to grow indefinitely. This allows for large-scale quantities of meat to be produced from a single biopsy.
Cells adapt to grow in vitro in serum-free media solutions.
The cells are fed a combination of inputs essential for cell growth, including glucose, minerals, growth factors, oxygen and water.
The cells can be seeded onto a scaffold to produce a structured product, or grown without a scaffold to produce a less-structured ‘minced’ product.
