Dutch scientists have developed a techinque to grow meat in a lab and plan to serve the world's first test tube hamburger this October. The meat is produced by putting stem cells of the animal in a nutrient broth with serum from a cow fetus, which grows into muscle cells and multiplies up to 30 times. The strips of meat contract like real muscles and are stretched on velcro to stay supple.
The first ‘test-tube’ hamburger is only a year away, scientists claim. They believe the product, beef mince grown from stem cells, could pave the way for eating meat without animals being slaughtered. The Dutch scientists predict th... Read Post
The world's first test tube hamburger will be served up this October after scientists perfected the art of growing beef in the lab. By generating strips of meat from stem cells researchers believe they can create a product that is i... Read Post
A Dutch scientist hopes he'll change minds about the viability of test tube meat when his first genetically engineered hamburger, made from billions of stem cells, is served hot off the grill. Mark Post, the head of physiology at Ma... Read Post
