STEMCELL Technologies Launches Innovative Products to Support CAR T Cell Research

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, June 30, 2015 - STEMCELL Technologies announces the launch of ImmunoCult™ Human T Cell Activator reagents and ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium to support T cell researchers in their goal to develop CAR T cell immunotherapeutics. The products provide significant benefits compared to existing technologies.


ImmunoCult™ Human T Cell Activators are soluble reagents that elicit robust activation and expansion of T cells and are highly shelf-stable. The Activator reagents are optimized for use with the xeno- and serum-free ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium. Together, ImmunoCult™ T Cell Activator reagents and ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium promote a streamlined workflow for the ex vivo activation and expansion of human T cells.


“We are uniquely poised to facilitate the development of cell therapies with our technology. We have been in this market for a long time, and many of our products are considered the gold standard,” said Dr. Allen Eaves, CEO and President of STEMCELL Technologies. “By enabling our customers to do research, knowing they can count on the quality and consistency of our products, we truly consider ourselves to be scientists helping scientists.”


ImmunoCult™ Human T Cell Activator reagents and ImmunoCult™-XF T Cell Expansion Medium build on STEMCELL’s existing portfolio of products to support T cell research, including the EasySep™ product line for immunomagnetic isolation of T cells. The new ImmunoCult™ products are currently for research use and STEMCELL is looking for partners to develop them for clinical applications.
