PSC Characterization Tools

Verifying the quality of your pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) is critical to moving your research goals forward. We have a variety of cellular and molecular methods to help you completely and cost-effectively characterize your PSCs. From the PluriTest compatible PrimeView Global Gene Expression Profile Assays, 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 lines with confidence.
