  Background & objectives: Hair follicle stem cells (HFSCs) are multipotent and various types of HFSCs were introduced. HFSCs separation using cell surface markers is one of the interesting strategies in the replacement of old methods. In this study, we used magnetic activating cell sorting (MACS) to separate HFSCs.

  Methods: In this study, HFSCs were isolated from Balb/c mice and dissected under an invert microscopy, and bulge area isolated and the bulge cells cultivated about 14 days. The CD34 positive cells isolated using CD34 monoclonal antibody and magnetic activated cell sorting system (MACS), then the cells incubated in DMEM/F12 and 10% FBS. The CD34 positive cells counted using a neubauer slide and evaluated under a fluorescent microscopy.

  Results: Here, we isolated CD34 positive cells using MACS and 12±1. 04% of HFSCs were CD34 positive and we found that, CD34 positive cells survived during 7 days cell culture in vitro.

  Conclusion: The results show that MACS is useful to increasing density gradient of cells in vitro.
