The method available at present for the measurement of the pluripotential stem cells (CFUs) is based on the formation of the macroscopically visible colonies on the spleen surface of the lethally irradiated mice recipients of the bone marrow cell suspension [9]. This method demonstrates a fraction of the pluripotential stem cells injected [7].
