A new method to scalably produce cardiomyocytes was described that has several advantages over previous methods: (1) It uses serum-free media and a novel combination of defined growth factors, (2) It does not require embryoid body formation or co-culture with other cell types; (3) It directly generates populations of cardiomyocytes at up to 80% purity without further purification and (4) It produces yields of cardiomyocytes sufficient for large animal and eventually human use.
