(DGIwire) — To date, the world’s oldest man and woman were Jiroemon Kimura of Japan, who lived to 116 years, 54 days, and Jeanne Calment of France, who lived to 122 years, 164 days. Few of us will become supercentenarians, but more of us live longer than ever thanks to better nutrition and healthcare. However, there are disorders—especially those arising later in life—that require more than traditional cures. As average life expectancy increases globally, so does the need for stem cell research. According to a recent article in Science China, scientists there are now exploring the frontiers of regenerative medicine. With strong support from the government and recruitment of highly trained scientists from abroad, it has now become possible for China to play an important role in international regenerative medicine, stem cell research, tissue engineering and gene therapy. Since Chinese medical researchers are getting into the regenerative medicine game a few years behind other countries like the United States, their only challenge is staying abreast of all the new technology and instruments that have been invented over the past few years. In this regard, there is great news for China and every other country that likewise wants to be on the forefront of stem cell research and regenerative medicine. One highly respected company in the U.S. has made it their mission over the past century to develop and sell cutting-edge scientific tools for life science research. That company is called Harvard Bioscience. Their catalogs are to scientific researchers what the Old Farmer’s Almanac is to farmers—a bible of sorts. Based in Holliston, Mass., Harvard Bioscience develops, manufactures and markets a broad range of specialized products with a primary focus on apparatus and instruments for the life sciences. Their products are used across a spectrum of well-established and cutting-edge applications. Their products are typically highly specialized for particular use in molecular, cellular and physiology research, and are harnessed by the world’s top pharmaceutical and biotech companies. Harvard Bioscience’s reach extends to thousands of researchers in more than 100 countries, who access the tools they need through the company’s diverse product offerings.
