Cells in the Laboratory: The Right Tool Leads to Success

It all begins with the cell – even in medicine. Biochemists and pharmacologists research new active ingredients, while physicians study specific cell properties and want to make use of the natural potential of stem cells. Cells and cell cultures are being tested in the laboratory to determine everything which could be technically suitable for healing purposes before it comes in contact with the living organism.
