Traditionally, stem cells are grown in two-dimensional vessels, although this poses a major challenge in the clinical-grade production of a large number of stem cells and their derivatives to fulfill the dose requirements in clinical trials (at a scale of ~109–1010 cells). The cultivation of microcarriers in stirred bioreactors has been recognized as among the most promising strategies for the rapid scale-up of stem cell-derived therapeutics under controlled conditions. In addition to largescale production, microcarriers have been applied in cell delivery systems for in vivo transplantation, to enhance cell survival and engraftment. ‘Microcarrier’ is a term used to refer to microspheres that support cells in mammalian cell culture, in which cells grow as monolayers on the surface of the particles. Microcarriers are spherical particles with a size ranging between 100 and 200 μm. Due to their small size, microcarriers have a wide variety of applications, one of which is cell culture and tissue engineering. This study proposes a novel model system for the in vitro study of cell proliferation ability on microcarriers.
