Stem cell-based technologies lay the basis for pioneering approaches in regenerative medicine, drug screening, and toxicology testing. Their commercial use requires reliable methods for the large-scale production of stem cells in consistent quality.

After a very successful event in 2017, Eppendorf is looking forward to hosting the 2nd Stem Cell Community Day on April 24, 2018 in Dusseldorf. The Stem Cell Community Day connects researchers from all over the world to discuss recent advances in the stem cells field.
