Hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) or hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) can be found in the blood, bone marrow, umbilical cord blood, or derived from Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) or induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). They are multipotent stem cells capable of forming every cell lineage in the blood and immune system. Hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs) are non-adherent, with a small, round morphology. A fundamental property of these cells is their capacity to self-renew, thus providing, in principle, a limitless source of daughter cells with the same functional properties. Several cell surface markers used for identifying human HPCs/HSCs include CD34+, CD59+, Thy1/CD90+, CD38 lo/-, C-kit/CD117+, Lin-.Common Applications
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are most commonly used in transplantation therapies to treat illnesses such as leukemia, lymphoma, and sickle cell diseases by reconstituting a patient's hematopoietic cell system.High Purity Stem Cells for Higher Reprogramming Efficiency
HPCs/HSCs can be reprogrammed to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) for use as disease models in stem cell research. StemPro® CD34+ cells have ≥90% CD34+ cells, as determined by Flow Cytometry, affording higher reprogramming efficiency than less pure populations. Protocols using CytoTune®-iPS Sendai Reprogramming Kit
are available on our website and included in the product insert.Isolation of CD34+ Cells from Cord Blood
StemPro® CD34+ primary cord blood cells from multiple human donors originating and collected in the United States are pooled and then enriched for the CD34+ cell population using immunomagnetic CD34 MicroBeads. Pooling the cord blood from multiple donors reduces the lot-to-lot variability of the product. The cells are derived from tissue obtained from accredited institutions through an IRB (Institutional Review Board) approved donor program and are negative for HIV and Hepatitis B.Quality control
QC for the StemPro® CD34+ cells includes testing for the following: mycoplasma, sterility, endotoxin, and FACS profile.
QC for StemPro-34 SFM includes testing for the following: Sterility, pH, endotoxin, osmolality, Hepatitis B Surface Antigen, HIV 1&2 antibody, HCV antibody, and CD34+ cell performance assay.Serum Free Medium Developed for CD34+ Cell Expansion
StemPro®-34 SFM is comprised of a basal liquid medium and frozen StemPro®-34 Nutrient Supplement. This serum-free media system was developed to support the growth of human CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells. Sera can vary from lot to lot in its ability to support cell-specific growth in culture. Serum-free culture systems eliminate this major variable in the study of hematopoiesis ex vivo
. StemPro®-34 SFM can be purchased separately.
