Live cell imaging and cell sorting by flow cytometry are possible experimental approaches for researchers working in stem cell research and regenerative medicine. In this post, we take a look at the Kyoto Probe 1 (KP-1) from (GORYO Chemicals).
In addition to a plethora of cytokines and growth factors which can be used in stem cell biology to stimulate differentiation, proliferation, and maintenance of different cell types, there are a number of small molecules which are known to act in similar ways on stem cells. The crucial point, is that these molecules have to be produced and formulated in a way which keeps them bio-active. [Read more…]
