is a qualitative and quantitative method, by which the proof of 'multipotency and proliferation capacity,' the most vital property of a stem cell, is assessed. This shows the capacity of a single stem cell, not only to differentiate into specialized cellular lineages (cell potency) but also ensure proliferation to an acceptable number of each of the specialized cell types.
denotes the percentage of alive (viable) stem cells present in the Umbilical Cord Blood which is capable of engraftment.
are stem cells that are plastic-adherent when maintained in standard culture conditions, they express cell surface molecules/markers like CD105, CD73 and CD90, and lack expression of CD45, CD34, CD14, CD19 and HLA-DR and also differentiate to osteoblasts, adipocytes and chondroblasts, in vitro.
are proteins or markers found on most cells in the body, and are used by the immune system to differentiate between one's own cells and others. HLA typing is used to match patients and donors for bone marrow or peripheral blood or umbilical cord blood stem cell transplants
is a next generation sequencing (NGS) based test that searches for variations in the coding regions of genes known to cause rare inherited diseases of pediatric-onset.
is a next generation sequencing (NGS) based test for comprehensive genomic profiling of all forms of childhood cancers, including but not limited to leukemia, brain tumors, and a diverse group of solid tumors.
