Stem Cell Analytics Core

Stem Cell Analytics Core

The Stem Cell Analytics Core in The Saban Research Institute at Children's Hospital Los Angeles is a shared lab and centralized support facility funded by the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine. Our main goal is to provide researchers with access to knowledge, resources, equipment and assistance working with pluripotent stem cells.

The Stem Cell Analytics Core and shared lab offers a variety of services focused around 4 key areas:

  • Cells and reagents
  • Equipment and laboratory space
  • Technical assistance
  • Research
  • Fee Structure

Note: Prices are subject to change in the future
