Detailed product information

Background information

The StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Kit offers a highly standardized method for analyzing hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells. The kit combines differentiation in methylcellulose-free cell culture with a standardized, flow cytometry-based read-out and eliminates the need for user-dependent, visual scoring under a microscope.
For the colony identification via flow cytometric readout when using the MACSQuant Analyzer, we provide an analysis excel sheet and a gating template. These analysis tools are optimized for the MACSQuantify Software version 2.11 and upwards. To receive these analysis tools, please contact your local technical support.

Applications

  • Characterization of CD34+ cells in their differentiation potential by CFU
  • Option for the measurement of GFP-modified cells

Technical data

Workflow using the StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Kit.
HSCs, diluted in StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Media, are plated in 96-well plates. After proliferation and differentiation for 14 days, the generated colonies are stained with the StemMACS HSC-CFU Assay Cocktail and analyzed by flow cytometry.
BFU-E: burst-forming unit-erythroid, CFU-G: colony-forming unit-granulocyte, CFU-M: CFU-macrophage, CFU-GM: CFU-granulocyte macrophage, CFU-GEMM: CFU-granulocyte erythrocyte macrophage megakaryocyte.
