As far as I know, normal cells have dimensions between 20-30 microns, and white blood cells have the same dimensions so I believe that stem cells have roughly the same size, maybe a little bit larger. A size of 20 nm is impossible - this means 200 A (Angstrom) which is the dimension of the sinaptic fan.

It would seem more logical to me that stem cells are smaller, not larger

Does anyone know the range for specific gravity of stem cells?
