Primary Cells and Stem Cells

Primary cells and stem cells are an essential part of life--they can be found in all multicellular organisms

Akron’s stem cells and cells derived from human blood are isolated from screened, healthy, consenting donors. Products include CD133+ and CD34+ hematopoietic stem cells isolated from peripheral blood.

A leading supplier of immunology products, Akron offers an impressive array of peripheral blood mononuclear cells: B cells, monocytes, NK cells, and selected CD3+, CD4+, and CD8+ T cells.

Hematopoietic Stem Cells

Hematopoietic stem cells are cells that have been separated and isolated from bone marrow or blood, and can renew themselves. They can also differentiate into specialized cells, mobilize themselves into the blood from bone marrow, and undergo apoptosis. Most often, hematopoeitic stem cells come from bone marrow, peripheral blood, or umbilical cord blood.

Blood Cells

Blood cells are the formed elements of blood, which include both red blood cells and white blood cells.

Platelets thumbnail


Platelets, or thrombocytes, are the clear, relatively small cell fragments found in blood. They are a common source of growth factors, and are involved in the formation of blood clots.

Neutrophils thumbnail


Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cell in circulation but they have a half-life of only 1-2 days.

Granulocytes thumbnail


Granulocytes are a specific type of white blood cell. They are made up of small granules, which is where they get their name. These granules are significant because they hold important proteins.
