The problem is that the stem cells are usually very rare and thus difficult to detect, and in many cases ...

Animal-Derived Laboratory Reagents

... (raised in mouse, rabbit, goat, etc.): From what I understand there are three main types with differing degrees of cost to animal life • In vitro Monoclonal antibodies: Once the hybridoma is created they can be grown indefinitely in vitro so there is minimal cost to animal life. Am I right in ...
