Research

The transformation of stem cell biology discoveries into viable cellular technologies has enormous promise to revolutionize a range of applications for many aspects of society. As a result, stem cell research is on the verge of broadly impacting a number of fields, including regenerative medicine, drug discovery & development, cell-based diagnostics and cancer.

Quality Control

Monitoring of stem cell phenotype. 

Expansion

Propagation. Successful derivation of stem cells requires subsequent propagation of the cells in phenotypic and karyotypic stable manners that avoid xenogeneic-derived products.  

Controlling Cell Fate

Environmental regulation of differentiation. 

Bioprocessing

Scalable processes. Successful translation of principles of stem cell propagation and differentiation must be transformed from bench-scale discovery into larger-scale systems capable of producing the volumes of cell derivatives necessary to supply commercially viable stem cell technologies.

Cell Separation

Downstream processing.
