Maintenance of Pluripotent Stem Cells

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.
