CellModel Services — Stem Cell Characterization
A challenging and often tedious aspect of stem cell research is the need to characterize cells throughout your experiments. Confirming cell identity, pluripotency, gene expression, and other characteristics of stem cells requires a broad set of tools and the expertise to know what to look for in each test.
With access to a complete portfolio of characterization tools and cutting-edge instruments, the CellModel Services team can perform numerous stem cell characterization experiments using cell lines that you provide or ones that we customize for you.

Scorecard Panel Characterization
TaqMan hPSC Scorecard Panel software produces an easy-to-read data output to indicate pluripotency and lineage bias.
The TaqMan hPSC Scorecard Panel enables verification of pluripotency and determination of lineage bias for both embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell lines.
For stem cell researchers seeking to access the characterization data that the Scorecard Panel provides, but who lack the resources or instrumentation to use the panel, our CellModel Services offer a convenient alternative to obtain the same data.
