Exhibitor Workshop: STEMCELL Technol., Inc.
Tools for Fundamental & Translational NK Cell Research
- Sneha Balani, Ph.D., Product Manager, Immunology
- Tim Le Fevre, B.Sc., Scientist
Natural killer (NK) cells are gaining popularity as a therapeutic tool for their unique ability to recognize and kill virus-infected and cancer cells without prior immune sensitization. Generating these cells in therapeutically relevant numbers continues to be a major challenge in the field. In this workshop, we will discuss reagents for cell isolation and generating NK cells from stem cells. We will also feature a new, streamlined culture system that enables feeder- and serum-free expansion of functional NK cells with high yields, providing a complete workflow solution for NK cell research.
