CellGenix® rh OSM

Preclinical grade

CellGenix Recombinant Human OSM promotes the differentiation of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) derived hepatoblasts into hepatocytes. It is produced in our dedicated animal-free facility ensuring maximum safety for optimal use in ATMP manufacturing.

General Information

Oncostatin M (OSM) is a cytokine belonging to the interleukin-6 (IL-6) subfamily and it most closely resembles leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) in both structure and function. It is primarily produced by T cells and monocytes. OSM plays an important role in liver development, hematopoiesis, and inflammation, and also has been shown to be associated with bone formation and resorption.

Preclinical Grade

The final manufacturing steps and quality control of all our preclinical grade products are performed in a GMP facility ensuring a consistent high quality.
