What are your hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) colony characterization days like? Do you spend hours staring into the microscopy, arguing with colleagues, uncertain about which colony-forming unit (CFU) you are looking at? Sounds familiar?
Watch the video and see how our novel StemMACS™ HSC-CFU Assay Kit, human can put an end to these tedious days!
The methylcellulose-free formulation of the StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Kit facilitates handling and cell cultivation by multiple ways.
Compared to the conventional assay based on visual scoring via light microscopy, the StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Kit, human enables you to characterize HSC colonies by flow cytometry. Based on the distinct marker expression profiles of each colony type, this flow cytometric readout delivers user-independent and clear results and standardizes your HSC -CFU assay.
Learn how to perform the flow cytometric analysis of the user-independent HSC-CFU assay in this application note.
When using the MACSQuant® Analyzer 10 or MACSQuant X Flow Cytometer, the flow cytometric HSC-CFU assay can be automated, facilitating and speeding up high-throughput screenings. One 96-well plate can be analyzed in 55 minutes.
