Cell Sorting and Its Significance in Stem Cell Research

Stem cells possess the remarkable potential to self-renew and to differentiate into many different types of cells. Due to their unique ability to regenerate, they are being used in regenerative medicine and offer great hope for treating diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. However, since stem cells represent a rare population of cells, they are not always easy to study. See how the simplicity, efficiency, and flexibility of cell sorting is making it possible to isolate pure populations of stem cells for downstream analyses.
