Product Synopsis

Stem cells are primitive cells found in all multi-cellular organisms that are characterized by self-renewal and the capacity to differentiate into any mature cell type. Categorized by stage of life, several broad categories of stem cells exist, including:  Embryonic stem cells, derived from blastocysts  Post-natal stem cells, derived from newborn tissues  Adult stem cells, found in adult tissues – including hematopoietic stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, neural stem cells, and more  Induced pluripotent stem cells, reprogrammed from adult cells  Cancer stem cells, which give rise to clonal populations of cells that form tumors or disperse in the body  Embryonic stem cells are stem cells derived from the inner...

  • Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) Dry Storage Casks market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019

    By - Transparency

    A surge of shutdowns may be observed in the future for most of the ageing nuclear reactors in the world. These reactors which have supplied power to millions of homes in the past have always faced hurdles in terms of public acceptance. With most nuclear plant owners unwilling to dish out extra millions for renovation of their old plants, gradual shutdowns are imminent. With the Fukishima disaster in Japan involving an old boiling water reactor built in the 70’s, the public sentiment towards the old nuclear plants is likely to deteriorate. The major issue closely linked...
