Optimization and Standardization of the Colony-Forming Unit Assay for Hematopoietic Progenitor Cells

Hematology expert Dr. Stephen J. Szilvassy, Ph.D, Associate Director of Hematopoietic Product R&D at STEMCELL Technologies Inc., discusses the use of the CFU assay to measure progenitor cells in different hematopoietic cell samples, with a particular focus on its use in cord blood banking. The webinar reviews several ways in which the CFU assay has been standardized, including the use of the STEMvision™ platform for automated scoring of all of the major CFU sub-types in different hematopoietic tissues. Newly developed image analysis software now ensures reduced variability and increased accuracy of CFU assay results.
