Purpose for research
The organoid facility supports organoid-based projects by facilitating quality-tested conditioned media and matrices. Every research group can contact the facility with their needs regarding their organoid projects. Bulk orders are placed for the extracellular matrix required for organoid growth, basement membrane extract (BME), allowing for much larger discounts. Each new batch of BME is quality tested by the facility before it is distributed to the researchers. In addition, R-spondin and Noggin conditioned media are produced and quality tested by the facility. This quality testing involves testing the activity of the media in reporter assays as well as their ability to support organoid growth.
