Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) have the ability to generate all cell types in the human body and can be used in many applications in basic research and translational medicine, including disease modeling, drug screening and cell therapy. Maintenance of high quality hPSCs is dependent on consistent in vitro cell culture conditions and handling techniques.
Explore the resources below to support your hPSC research.
View this webinar presentation by Prof. Kevin Eggan (Harvard University) and Dr. Florian Merkle (University of Cambridge) to learn more about genetic variations in human pluripotent stem cell (hPSC) cultures revealed by whole exome sequencing of more than 100 of the world’s hES cell lines, and the importance of maintaining high-quality hPSCs for regenerative medicine and other applications.View Now >
