A challenging and often tedious aspect of stem cell research is the need to characterize cells throughout your experiments.  Confirming cell identity, pluripotency, gene expression, and other characteristics of stem cells requires a broad set of tools and the expertise to know what to look for in each test.

With access to a complete portfolio of characterization tools and cutting-edge instruments, the CellModel Services team can perform numerous stem cell characterization experiments using cell lines that you provide or ones that we customize for you.
