COMMITTED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE
The availability of reproducible and quantitative in vitro assays for various hematopoietic progenitor cells has been a powerful tool for investigating both normal and abnormal hematopoiesis. In order to assist researchers in this field we provide media formulated to meet various requirements, including serum-free products. Our media have set a world standard using pre-screened components, high quality manufacturing processes and rigorous quality control to ensure products with superior performance and lot-to-lot reproducibility.
Standardization of the culture medium provides the platform for maximizing reproducible hematopoietic colony formation. In order to achieve a highly reproducible environment, conditions such as temperature, humidity, incubation time, cell processing and plating concentration must be optimized for consistent analysis of colony growth and morphology.
StemCell Technologies has made a commitment to provide technical assistance to researchers who want to get the most out of their in vitro hematopoietic colony assays. Identification and quantification of these hematopoietic progenitor cells are major issues for standardizing colony assays. Instructional materials in the form of technical manuals and visual aids such as a colony atlas and colony slides are invaluable tools designed to assist researchers in becoming more proficient at identification of hematopoietic colonies. Training courses are another step we have taken to ensure our customers receive the latest information and obtain personalized instruction for performing various in vitro hematopoietic colony assays and cell separation procedures. Finally, the introduction of our global proficiency testing program allows comparisons of progenitor enumeration between laboratories.
