Chicken cell soup
Think you’re just looking at a whisk rotating aimlessly in some bright red liquid?
What you’re in fact witnessing is one of the miracles of Roslin Tech science — the expansion of chicken stem cells in a bioreactor. On day one the liquid is quite clear as we start with only a few of the cells but look closely on day four and the liquid turns into a cloudy soup of chicken stem cells as 500 million cells swirl around.
Roslin Technologies has many applications for this technology including the production of valuable proteins as well as cultured meat products.
