About Us

The Mission at StemExpress is to accelerate the cure and prevention of significant medical conditions at life-changing speed. In 2010, the company was created to expedite research and clinical trials through the implementation of our own stem cell collection centers and state-of-the-art cell manufacturing laboratories. We support medical research, gene therapies and clinical trials by collecting human bone marrow and blood cells from our donors and sending to our clients. We provide expediency from order to delivery and guarantee every sample arrives with the highest purity, viability, and quality that researchers need to ensure confidence in their results. By shortening the time it takes to collect samples or isolate primary cells, we can help reduce months, and even years off a project. That means new cures and treatments can reach patient care faster, giving months and years back to the people afflicted with serious medical conditions.

In addition to our company's core cell and gene therapy initiatives, in 2020 we began partnering with hospitals and public health departments to provide end-to-end COVID-19 testing using gold-standard PCR.
