Tri-lineage assessment of the Quantum®-expanded BM- and UC-MSCs. Representative images of osteogenic, adipogenic and chondrogenic differentiation of BM-MSCs (top row) and UC-MSCs (bottom row) grown in the Quantum® bioreactor at P1 and differentiated at P2 for 21 days. BM-MSCs displayed more alkaline phosphatase activity (osteogenesis indicator) and the presence of more lipids (indicative of adipogenesis) compared to UC-MSCs, whereas chondrogenic GAG assessments were comparable across cell types. Scale bars represent 100 μm
