Since the early nineties, IBET has been developing bioreaction processes to cultivate primary cells under long term batch, semi batch or perfusion conditions. Such expertise was later used to expand and tightly differentiate stem cells (hESC, Cardiac, iPS...). Finally, tools for long term experimentation or drug testing for brain, liver or cancer cell models have been implemented. Universal features and specifities of the different systems will be reviewed and their relevance highlighted.
