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.
Monitoring of stem cell phenotype.
Propagation. Successful derivation of stem cells requires subsequent propagation of the cells in phenotypic and karyotypic stable manners that avoid xenogeneic-derived products.
Environmental regulation of differentiation.
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.
