- Annual quality control of stem/progenitor cell (CD34+) analysis
On September 12, 2018, the iVF Riga Stem cell Center Laboratory performed external quality control for the analysis of hematopoietic stem cells (CD34 + cells) by flow cytometry. For the characterization of hematopoietic stem cells (CD34 +), it was necessary to calculate the concentration of stem cells in the blood and to determine their viability. The iVF Riga Stem Cell Centre Laboratory has met the External Quality Control Requirements according to these criteria and has obtained a certificate confirming that the laboratory is able to perform a qualitative analysis of hematopoietic stem cells (CD34 + cells). The certificate was issued by the German company INSTAND, which provides quality control to medical laboratories, and is valid for one year.
