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.

Speed Time to Results by Incorporating Flow Cytometry into the CRISPR/Cas-9 Gene Editing Workflow

The power to edit a gene is the power to change its function, and with it the biology of a cell. From generating novel cell lines and better animal models for the discovery and preclinical phases of therapeutic research to actually creating a therapeutic itself, CRISPR gene editing is allowing science to advance rapidly. See how enrichment and cell sorting can help generate edited cells faster and more reliably.
