Celebrate 25 Years of Scientific Progress


Science moves forward when you share it with the world.

In the 1970s and 80s, research progress on blood-forming stem cells was limited by the lack of optimized cell culture media. Drs. Connie and Allen Eaves, cancer researchers who founded the Terry Fox Laboratory in Vancouver, therefore developed a standardized media that allowed growth of colonies of both red and white cells in the same culture dish. This media, called MethoCult™, became the world standard for studying normal and leukemic blood-forming stem cells. STEMCELL Technologies was founded 25 years ago to enable large scale manufacture and global distribution of this media.

Since then, STEMCELL has become a company of Scientists Helping Scientists, sharing scientific advancements in the form of over 2,500 products to support life science research.
