Dear Scientist,

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

screening applications.

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

384-well format.

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:

Cancer Research

Stem Cell Research

Drug Discovery

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)

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.)
