The Assessment of Parameters Affecting the Quality of Cord Blood by the Appliance of the Annexin V Staining Method and Correlation with CFU Assays

Figure 3

CFU observed versus the amount of CD3 cells seeded assessed by different methods. Following the linear regression, Annexin V-based analysis (red squares) resulted in values closer to the theoretical expected results (dotted line) than those of the standard ISHAGE-protocol (blue circles) either after volume reduction or after thawing.
