Training courses

Training Courses for Stem Cells
STEMCELL Technologies offers a wide range of training courses that provide both a theoretical and practical “hands-on” introduction to working with hematopoietic progenitor cells, neural stem cells, mammary stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, and human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells.

Proficiency testing

Proficency Testing
STEMCELL Technologies encourages customers to participate in our Proficiency Testing Programs, which are aimed at the standardization of all steps in performing hematopoietic colony assays for the enumeration of bone marrow or cord blood progenitors.

Custom education

Contract Assay
On-site customized training can be highly beneficial to address specific research challenges or to standardize technical processes. Our custom training packages allow a STEMCELL Technologies technical specialist to travel to your facility for personalized instruction. Most packages consist of a technical lecture, an instructional booklet, a “hands-on” practical session and an in-depth discussion of topics. Popular training topics include the hematopoietic progenitor assay or the maintenance and differentiation of hES and iPS cells. Courses covering the hematopoietic progenitor assay can be conducted in English, French or German. Customized training may require a minimum number of participants and specialized equipment.

Custom courses give you:
  • Hands-on training using your own cultures
  • Low instructor to student ratios
  • Procedures rapidly standardized within your group
  • Hosted at your own facility
  • Confidentiality agreements as required
