PSC Characterization Tools

Verifying the quality of your induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) is critical to moving your research goals forward. From Alkaline Phosphatase Live Stain, which provides quick verification of pluripotency, to TaqMan hPSC Scorecard Panel, which confirms trilineage differentiation potential, we have the tools you need to characterize with confidence.
