Despite the hubbub about pluripotent stem cells’ potential applications, when it comes time to introduce products into patients, the stem cells are actually impurities that need to be removed.

So, a team of researchers from Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology has developed an extremely sensitive technique for detecting stray stem cells.

Stem cell expert Chunhui Xu, who is a researcher with the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience, has teamed up with biomedical engineers Ximei Qian and Shuming Nie (also a Petit Institute researcher) for the research, detailed in Biomaterials.

All three are researchers part of the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering, a joint department of Emory University and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
