The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss emerging tools and strategies for stem cell characterization.

The identification and isolation of stem cells is dependent on tools and strategies to distinguish stem cells from a heterogeneous cellular population. Stem cells can be characterized by cellular, molecular, and functional assays. Although much progress has been made, technical challenges persist in characterizing stem cell identity, lineage, and purity. The Scientist brings together a panel of experts to discuss emerging tools and strategies for stem cell characterization. Attendees can interact with the experts during the live webinar by asking questions and sharing their experiences using stem cells.

Topics to be covered:

  • Basic concepts underlying stem cell identification and current industry standards
  • Approaches and considerations for stem cell isolation and characterization
  • Strategies for incorporating appropriate tools into your workflow
