About us:
Elixirgen Scientific, launched in 2016, is a Baltimore-based biotechnology company focused on stem cell related technology. The company’s mission is to make stem cell innovation available to everyone.

The company is now providing reagents, kits, cryopreserved cells and services at an affordable price to help make research and other laboratory work more efficient.
Elixirgen Scientific is located in the Science and Technology Park at Johns Hopkins in Baltimore, an ideal research environment that allows Elixirgen Scientific’s scientists to conduct research at state-of-the-art facilities.
