Stem Cell Overview

MDS offers services in the many phases of stem cell therapy. We can culture adult or embryonic stem cells and monitor the differentiation markers for your therapy development. Embryonic stem cells are obtained from the inner cell of the blastocyst. When placed into culture they can differentiate into many types of cells such as blood cells, neurons, pancreatic cells, muscle cell, heart (cardiomyocytes) cells and germ cells. Please contact us if you have any questions about our services offered.

Our scientists can help clients to develop stems cells that synthesize their therapeutic molecule by initiating differentiation and monitoring specific production.

MDS's scientists are highly experienced in techniques to evaluate expression of genes and/or factors that enable differentiation into specific stem cell lines. Examples of these factors include:
G-band karyotyping; 20 to 50 cell counts
FISH analysis offered for human and mouse cells
Human Pathogen Screening
Human viral panel for 10 adventitious agents: HIV-1, HIV-2, HTLV type I,
HTLV type II, HSV-1, HSV-2, CMV, EBV, HBV and HCV
Identity Testing
Short Tandem Repeat (STR) analysis using 16 probes - 15 STR loci plus
Amelogenin - to ensure the identity of your cell. Also available: SNP, DNA Profiling
PCR Services
Stem Cell Pluripotency Signature
Sterility Testing

Assays to ensure the absence of bacterial, fungal and mycoplasma contamination. Also available: Cell Bank Sterility, Cell Line Characterization
