Stem Cell Analysis
Stem cell research requires a broad set of cellular and molecular tools to confirm cell identity, pluripotent or multipotent status of the stem cell population, and the success of a differentiation experiment.
Whether analyzing proliferation, protein levels, gene expression, or epigenetic profiles, Life Technologies has the right product for your research.

Stem Cell Sample Preparation
Stem Cell Labeling & Detection
Life Technologies offers a diverse array of research products for studying stem cell structure, tracing and tracking stem cells, and analyzing proliferation, viability and function. Use Qdot® nanocrystals for live imaging, or choose from the extensive collection of Alexa Fluor® dyes for cell staining. Select from a broad range of fluorescent antibodies for flow cytometry and combine them with the the Attune® Acoustic Focusing Cytometer for true rare event detection in stem cells.
Stem Cell Protein Analysis
Accurate and sensitive quantification of proteins is key to most stem cell experiments. There are a number of techniques researchers use for quantifying proteins including ELISA, western blot analysis, TaqMan® assays and colorimetric and fluorometric solution assays. Life Technologies offers high-quality, easy-to-use reagents and kits for these methods.
Stem Cell Genomic Analysis
Stem cells are most often identified on the basis of their marker expression. DNA-based methods for the identification of cell lines, assessment of genomic stability, full genome analysis, and detection of adventitious organisms can be applied to stem cells. TaqMan® Arrays can be used to simultaneously analyze the expression levels of 96 genes by quantitative PCR, while the OpenArray® Real-Time PCR Platform can process hundreds to thousands of samples per day.
