Review quote

From the reviews: "The present volume 'Stem Cell Assays' ... include very detailed experimental sections, which are essentially raw lab protocols. ... All protocols are explained in full detail ... and should be very useful for researchers novel to this field. In addition, for more experienced scientists it may be very useful to compare their own protocols with those provided in this volume ... . this book will be of great value for experimental scientists that wish to introduce novel technology into their labs."

Back cover copy

With such benefits as producing cell types to replace worn-out cells and regenerating damaged tissue, stem cells and regenerative medicine is a rapidly emerging field focusing on improving human health. In Stem Cell Assays, an expert team of hands-on researchers contribute step-by-step laboratory protocols aimed at clearly organizing the avalanche of information coming from the stem cell biology field. Following the successful and practical Methods in Molecular Biology series format, each chapter provides concise methods utilizing the most recent developments in embryonic and adult stem cell isolation, characterization, customized differentiation and many more areas, a complete list of the necessary materials, and the valuable Notes section for tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Stem Cell Assays brings the newest developments to the forefront in an invaluable reference volume for both novice and expert scientists alike. "show more
