Stemina specializes in metabolomic technologies to understand cell biology in both health and disease. Our current platforms are focused in the areas of toxicology and diagnostics through our neurodevelopmental disorders division NeuroPointDX.

Stemina Biomarker Discovery is a metabolomics company focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of molecular biomarkers to improve drug safety and human health. Stemina’s cell-based assays arise from the strategic convergence of two cutting edge technologies: human embryonic stem (hES) cells and metabolomics. Stemina uses mass spectrometry to analyze the small molecules secreted by hES cells, and differentiated cells such as heart and neural cells made from hES cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS cells), in response to drugs, injury, or disease. Stemina opened its state-of-the-art facilities for hES cell culture and mass spectrometry in Madison, Wisconsin on November 1, 2007.

Customer workflow

Creating success by working with Stemina


Project workflows begin with a discussion with the Stemina team to assure that the experimental design is focused and the studies are powered appropriately to yield the desired outcomes.

Once agreement has been reached on the study design, an experienced scientific project leader is assigned and your work is scheduled. During the project, there are frequent check-ins to advise clients on progress. The team, led by the project manager, includes members of Stemina’s scientific team from biology, analytical technology, and informatics. The team stays with the project throughout to assure a seamless experience.

A detailed report is prepared containing a summary of the data and results. In addition, a presentation and a discussion with clients is held to take advantage of Stemina’s experience in metabolomics and to maximize the value of the work.
