Culture Your Expertise in Hematopoiesis with Us

Being a scientist involves cultivating your expertise through new findings in your experiments, in combination with the discoveries of those who have come before you - the experts. As stem cell scientists ourselves, we owe everything to those who have helped us get to where we are today. After more than 20 years in the field of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cell (HSPC) research, we are proud to share our expertise with you through educational materials, technical support staff and our products. See More

Join us as we discuss where the field is heading through interviews and webinars with our STEMCELL scientists and our colleagues at other institutions. Access helpful resources, including tips to make the most of your classic and newer cutting-edge assays. Much like the experiments that make up your publications, these resources will be divided into focused phases addressing specific types of assays, and will build over time to create a unified story. We will begin with the step of obtaining cells; “Cell Sourcing & Isolation”, moving over to “Expansion & Differentiation”, and finally to “Analysis”.
