How is Cytometry the Driving Force in Stem Cell Research and Therapy? Find Out in a Special Issue of ISAC's Journal Cytometry Part A
Stem cell research and therapy is on the cutting edge of science, and flow cytometry is by nature the ideal tool to identify, characterize and isolate stem and progenitor cells for research and potential clinical use. Furthermore, image and flow cytometry together with cell sorting have revolutionized the study of stem cell biology and the implications of these cells and their progeny in developmental biology, tissue engineering and cellular therapy. This month's special issue of Cytometry Part A explores the latest innovations and discoveries in stem cell research and therapy.
Applications of stem cells include several disciplines from embryogenesis, adult tissue maintenance, and repair, and more recently, cancer as well as for toxicity screening and disease modeling. All of these topics are represented in the January 2013 issue of Cytometry A with special emphasis on the role of analytic and preparative flow cytometry in the elucidation of stem cell phenotype and fuction, and best laboratory practices as they apply to flow cytometry.
