What we do
Stemina is the world leader in building human cellular models for toxicity screening of drug candidates, chemical compounds, cosmetic and tobacco ingredients. Our developmental toxicity assays are the only human system for assessing the risk that a compound will cause birth defects if a woman is exposed during pregnancy.

What we do


Stemina's toxicology assays are the only human in vitro assays for developmental toxicity screening.



Stemina's metabolomics platform and expertise in cellular models can be used for custom projects.


Our Team

Stemina has assembled a world class team of scientists and experts. Meet our team.

Utilizing devTOXqP in a Combined Testing Approach for Identifying Developmental Toxicity Liability of Chemicals [Webinar Slides]

Aug 16, 2017
Why develop devTOX? Reduce prevalence of birth defects and decrease animal testing. Our approach represents a unique opportunity to screen compound safety using a human endpoint. devTOX quickPredict is a predictive, targeted biomarker assay. (devTOX Discovery, on the other hand, is a predictive, untargeted metabolomics assay.) Jessica Palmer presented this webinar in October 2016. If
