NESS ZIONA, Israel, Feb. 8, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- MeaTech 3D Ltd., (NASDAQ-CM: MITC), an international food technology company at the forefront of the cultured meat industry, today revealed significant improvement in its differentiation process from stem cells to muscle fibers. The company has succeeded in accelerating the formation of real living muscle fibers and enhancing their quality to mirror key characteristics of farm-raised meat.
These results show the process in which bovine stem cells were isolated, proliferated in the lab, and differentiated into matured muscle cells with improved muscle fiber density, thickness and length. Based on these improvements, MeaTech has filed a provisional patent application with the USPTO.
Arik Kaufman, CEO of MeaTech: "Today's achievement is another important step towards our goal of developing a true replacement for conventional meat. We are committed to advancing our cellular technology to attain a cultivated-meat-eating experience that replicates that of farm-raised meat. This achievement follows our recent announcement that we successfully 3D printed an almost 4 oz steak comprised of actual living muscle and fat tissue."
