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.
