Streamline Your Drug Discovery and Toxicity Testing
Virtual Conference Exhibition at ACT 2020
Toxicity is a major cause of attrition in therapeutic drug development and a key consideration when selecting candidate drugs for advancement through the development pipeline. Whether you are attending ACT 2020 from November 12 - 19 or just exploring, learn more about how our ethically sourced human primary cells, Contract Assay Services, or other products and services can help you with drug development and toxicity testing.

Contract Out Your In Vitro Assays
Contract Assay Services (CAS) combines the power of specialized STEMCELL products with the practical knowledge of our scientists to provide both standardized and customized assay services. Partner with our in-house contract research organization (CRO) to obtain timely, high-quality, and clinically relevant data.
Colony-Forming Cell (CFC) Assays
CFC assays are in vitro assays in semi-solid media that are used for the quantitative assessment of proliferation and differentiation of hematopoietic progenitors to lineage-committed colonies for myeloid, erythroid, and megakaryocyte cells.Learn More >
HemaTox™ assays can assess the toxicity of drugs on the growth and lineage-specific differentiation of human CD34+ hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPCs) into one of three specific progenitor cell lineages. It allows for flexible treatment regimens and improves ability to evaluate the effects of antiproliferative drugs in vitro.Learn More >
Let us help you evaluate preclinical test compounds and biologics for their abilities to modulate the immune system. We offer customized cell-based assays based on your specific needs and can help you design studies to evaluate the effects of potential immunomodulatory agents using fresh or frozen cell samples.Explore Now >
To help you evaluate the effects of your investigative compounds on the human airway, we offer services using air-liquid interface (ALI) cultures of airway epithelial cells using our specifically designed PneumaCult™ serum- and bovine pituitary extract-free culture system.Explore Now >
