Array & Assay Kits

Cell Adhesion Assays

MicroMatrix Arrays
We offer MicroStem's MicroMatrix™ technology to discover and elucidate cell culture and screening conditions for many different mammalian cell types. MicroStem technology will immobillize soluble and insoluble molecules in combination as a solid phase array. Cells adhere to these arrays for real time and end point experiments. Because the platform is a micro-array it requires minimal amounts of cells to test thousands of molecules in parallel. Our products require no liquid handling or robotic instrumentation. High content analysis and other forms of image based analysis can be used.

Stem Cell Differentiation Assays

ColonyGEL™ Methylcellulose-based CFC Assays

About Colony Forming Cell Assays

Hematopoietic progenitors with lineage-restricted (less primitive) or multi-lineage (more primitive) potential form morphologically distinct colonies when grown in a suitable semi-solid medium containing appropriate growth factors and other supplements. To form the specific colony type that characterizes its potential, a progenitor cell must both proliferate and differentiate within the supportive matrix.

Colony-forming cell (CFC) assays therefore have great utility in the identification and enumeration of the different types of functional progenitors in hematopoietic tissues (e.g. bone marrow, cord blood, fetal liver) and manipulated cell populations (e.g. purified, expanded, frozen/thawed, drug treated, etc.).

For a variety of reasons, methylcellulose has become the matrix of choice for semi-solid media for CFC assays. Pre-screening and qualification of the various components of methylcellulose-based media allow for media products that are highly reproducible in their ability to support vigorous and robust growth of the various types of progenitors.

ColonyGEL™ meets the highest standards of methylcellulose-based media for hematopoietic colony-forming cell assays.

Viability Assays

Ctyo-X Cell Viability & Proliferation Assay

Cyto-X a colorimetric cell viability reagent which is more sensitive and less toxic than other commercially available cell counting reagents.

Cyto-X , a highly water-soluble tetrazolium salt, is reduced by dehydrogenases (DH) in live cells to form an orange colored formazan product that is soluble in culture medium. The amount of formazan product is directly proportional to the enzymatic activity of DH´s and the number of living cells.

Proliferation Assays

EdU Proliferation Assay
Get the click chemistry – Baseclick, founded 2008, offers Proliferation Assays. Their products are based on the outstanding “click technology”. The detection of cell proliferation is of utmost importance for assessing cell health, determining genotoxicity or evaluating anticancer drugs.

The core of the this technology is the “click reaction”, a copper catalyzed cycloaddition allowing virtually unlimited functionalization of both small synthetic oligonucleotides and large gene fragments with unprecedented efficiency. Characteristic therefore are the broad application possibilities, high yields and easy & quick reaction conditions using readily available and inexpensive reagents.
