Some are leaving, we are growing. So we like to say welcome on
board our new Sales-Team members Dr. Ingrid Kautner and Dr.
Gautier Arista. Just go to page 6 to learn more about them.
As we get more and more questions about how we will handlle the
Brexit: We continue to deliver to the UK, no worries, stay happy. And
as fast as we can in the same manner you are used from PELOBiotech.
The exact delivery conditions will depend on the regulations as
UK will no longer be part of the Europen Union. But we already have
very good experiences delivering to e.g. Switzerland and other No-
EU countries. So we do not expect any major challenges.
You don´t know how long you will be able to work on the bench,
lab&office? We know that COVID-19 has impacted upon your research,
so we like to help you stay on track as fast as possible. We are ready to
support you in any kind you need.
If you would like to order your products now and hold delivery until you
are sure you can go on, please let us know upon ordering. Please check
with your facility whether there have been changes in your logistics routine
due to new safety protocols:
Are you still accepting and getting deliveries the same way? We will
check in with you before we send out your delivery as we ask you politely
to do the same. Thank you.
To discuss this our logistics, customer success&support are here for any
of your questions. Online resources are available to teams around the
world, so you can schedule an Online-Meeting and Support anytime via
phone or Go-to-meeting. We are just one click away.
On behalf of the global PELOBiotechTeam, we’re here for you.
Take very good care and stay safe!

PELOAcademy: Our Webinar-Series
New Defined Serum-free and
Chemically Defined Media for MSCs
presented by Dr. Peter Frost, CEO, PELOBiotech
Date: Thur October 22, 2020
Time: 10 AM German & 3.30 PM English
Save ticket -> www.pelobiotech.com/pelo-academy
We discuss ou the most important steps during your
workflow. This time it will be about: Mesenchymal Stem
Cells (MSCs) are widely used in regenerative medicine; in
research as well as in clinical application. The in vitro
culture and expansion is done by mainly using Fetal Bovine
Serum (FBS) or human Platelet Lysate (hPL) based
media. Media containing hPL are very popular as this
facilitate a xeno-free culture of MSCs; in 2D as well as in
3D. As hPL is a human blood product safety issues are of
high priority and authorities ask for virus inactivated hPL
for clinical application. To overcome these safety issues,
defined serum-free and/or chemically defined media for
MSCs are needed. It is also necessary, for the production
and investigation of extracellular vesicles (EV) using primary
cells (e.g. MSCs), to have defined serum-free and/
or chemically defined media to prevent an EV contamination
by serum or hPL.
We present data using the defined serum-free (CellCorTM SFD MSC) and
chemically defined (CellCorTM CD MSC) media of our partner XCell
Therapeutics. We will show that these media can be used for MSCs culture
as well as for MSCs expansion; Also a short overview of the most
advanced Extracellular Matrices.

3D CoSeedis comprises a
family of chips suited for various
amounts of 3D constructs.
They range from 200 spheroids
(3D CoSeedis Chip200) to
880 spheroids per chip (3D
CoSeedis Chip880), both in 6
-well plate format, and also
include a version for 680
spheroids per chip (3D
CoSeedis Chip680) for 24-
well plates. Chips can either
be purchased in single packages
or in bulk.

NEW White paper by abc biopply: How to
Revolutionise the Use of 3D Cultures in HTS
Our partner abc biopply has released a white paper demonstrating the unprecedented
quality of 3D CoSeedis in the production of highly homogenous
and uniform spheroids for the use in high-throughput and highcontent
The paper was done in collaboration with Union Biometrica, Inc. (USA) and
shows how 3D CoSeedis can be used as a manufacturing tool to produce
large quantities of homogenous and uniform 3D spheroids in a HTS/HCScompatible
The 3D CoSeedis
platform thereby not only
sets new standards in highvolume
production of 3D
spheroids but it also helps
to substantially increase
screening efficiency. It’s
based on a 24-well plate
format for aggregation,
growth and harvesting and
the resulting spheroid suspension
is used to seed
384-well plates with individual
spheroids using Union Biometrica’s large particle sorter. The resulting
384-well plates contain viable and uniform spheroids in more than 98% of
all the wells and show minimal size variability from one plate to another.
3D CoSeedis thereby helps to decrease screening failure rates and
consequently increases overall screening efficiency.

Mechanical communication of endothelial cells and
its influence on the organization of cellular structures
The formation of new blood vessels from existing ones is called angiogenesis and plays an important
role in tissue development, healing and homeostasis as well as in pathological processes, such as tumor
growth. During this process, coordinated cell movement is essential for which endothelial cells use a chemical communication
via the vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). The extracellular matrix (ECM) regulates many tissue
processes and influences cell behavior. The dynamic cell-ECM interaction enables a mechanical communication
between cells. This thesis aims to validate, whether endothelial cells also use a mechanical communication for
coordinated cell behavior. For the investigation of the endothelial … read more …..

NEW Partner Rokit Healthcare for Human Nativelike
Coating and Targeted Cell type Growth
PELOBiotech welcomes a new partner aboard: As of today we happily offer
HumaTein products from Rokit Healthcare (South Korea) in Europe. Cell Culture
Expert PELObiotech widens its extensive portfolio of specific matrices.
HumaTein composition is optimized for a target cell type growth and
proliferation in a native-like environment. The best possible Extracellular
Matrix (ECM) is most important for cell attachment, proliferation and migration,
and plays an import role as a growth factor reservoir.
Plus for Scientists:
Easy: HumaTein is not sensitive to temperature changes.
In-Vivo: Human primary cell derived HumaTein provides the most invivo
like environment to cells, great for translational studies
Specific: provides organ specific stiffness controlled environment
Native: preserves whole ECM components, so the is as human-like as
HumaTein offers a wide spectum of applications:
Stem Cell Research
Tissue Engineering & Regenerative Medicine
2D Cell Culture as Coating for primary cells or HUVEC migration assay
3D Cell Culture for e.g. Organoid Culture, Natural scaffold for inital cell
aggregation (iPS cell spheroids)

HumaTein TM Essential Powder Type
HumaTein TM Essential Powder Type
HumaTein TM MSC Powder Type
HumaTein TM MSC Powder Type
HumaTein TM Atello Collagen
It is also well known in the research for Wound Healing and Anti Aging.
HumaTein Matrix is an ideal coating material for feeder layer free induced
pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) culture. Xeno free and human cell derived Huma
Tein is optimized for organoid research.
HumaTein will be produced in cell culture using human dermal fibroblast or
BM MSC. The product is whole ECM derived by these cells together with the
expressed cytokines and growth factors. HumaTein consists of > 300 components
which incudes collagen, laminin, fibronectin, glycosaminoglycans,
more than 500 cytokines.
It is offered as powder produced with human Fibroblast (HumaTein Essential)
or BM MSC (HumaTein Msc) and the HumaTein Atello Collagen a hydrogel
which is not a 100 % human product.)
