UK-based Roslin Technologies is making induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells – primary or mesenchymal stem cells that have been reprogrammed to function as ‘master cells’ that can proliferate indefinitely and differentiate into multiple cells types such as muscle and fat - available to cell-cultured meat producers, said CEO Ernst Van Orsouw.
“We need to bring the costs of [cell-cultured meat] production down and the cells are going to be essential to achieve that.”
