Stem cells are cells that can differentiate into other types of cells, and can also self-renew to produce more of the same type of stem cells. Their ability to repair, regenerate, and develop into certain specialized cell types has offered new perspectives as therapies for a number of diseases.
Adult stem cells can be found throughout the human body, but these are typically present in minute quantities and surrounded by other differentiated cells. Therefore, single cell technologies play a pivotal role to comprehend the underlying molecular mechanisms driving their differentiation and fate.
To date, cellenONE has successfully been used for both isolation of single stem cells for their genomic analyses and for gentle cloning of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.
