Antibody-based tools and protocols for characterization of pluripotent stem cells

Stem cell biology constitutes one of the fastest growing areas in the life sciences. Accordingly, there is strong demand for improving the characterization tools and protocols available to stem cell researchers. We have developed a series of antibody-based tool sets and protocols that facilitate detection of important cellular markers for pluripotent stem cells and the differentiated cell types that can be derived from them (e.g., three germ layers, neural stem cells, cardiomyocytes).

Assessing functional pluripotency: TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Assay

This presentation reviews the TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Panel.  This panel is a real-time PCR assay used to evaluate self renewal in pluripotent stem cells, as well as germ layer bias by using intuitive data analysis software.

Considerations for the culture of pluripotent stem cells

A scientist’s choices for pluripotent stem cell culture have grown markedly in the last several years. The selection of matrixes, media options, passaging methods and plastic ware can overwhelm even the most experienced stem cell scientist. This presentation will cover many of the options available and what to expect from each systems outcome.

CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit

This presentation reviews the newly released CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit.  This kit uses a non-integrating technology for the generation of iPSCs, and provides a high reprogramming efficiency, low cytotoxicity, and fast clearance of the vectors.

Eliminate serum to gain control of your T cell research – New xeno-free serum replacement

Human serum (HS) is commonly used as a supplement in cell culture media to support sufficient cell expansion when manufacturing T cell products for adoptive cell therapies. Human serum’s inherent variability typically requires lot screening to prequalify lots which adds to time, cost and supply risks in finding an acceptable lot. Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed a product that is a fully defined serum replacement containing only human-derived or recombinant proteins which can support expansion of T cells similar to human serum.

Hands-free stem cell research: services to save you time

To reprogram, expand, characterize, engineer, and differentiate stem cells, you’ll need time and a lot of patience. When your lab is short on time or hands, our CellModel™ Services team can help keep your research on a steady path forward – freeing you and your lab mates to focus on more critical steps. Performed by a team of scientists with extensive stem cells experience, CellModel™ Services offers you flexibility – choose an entire workflow or just certain steps. In this short video, we will share a menu of available services and describe options that let you craft a project that fits your unique requirements.

PSC Cardiomyocyte Differentiation Kit – PSCs to cardiomyocytes in three steps

Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced PSC Cardiomyocyte Differentiation Kit, a serum-free and xeno-free media system that provides efficient differentiation of human pluripotent stem cells to contracting cardiomyocytes in as few as 8 days. Unlike other methods which require multiple components and longer assay duration, PSC Cardiomyocyte Differentiation Kit generates cardiomyocytes from pluripotent stem cells in a ready-to-use media format and in less time. Differentiated cardiomyocytes express relevant physiological markers, contract in culture, and can be subsequently maintained in culture for less than 15 days.

Rapid induction of neural stem cells without the need for EB formation

To address the need for an easy and scalable process for the NSC generation, we have developed PSC Neural Induction Medium which can convert hPSCs into NSCs in one week with 80-90% of efficiency but without the time consuming laborious processes of embryoid body formation and mechanical NSC isolation.
