Several Applied Biosystems real-time PCR platforms are compatible with the TaqMan hPSC Scorecard Panel. If you already have any ofthese instruments installed you just need to download the template file (.edt or .sdt), import it into your instrument's data collection software, and then begin your experiment:

  • QuantStudio 12K Flex
  • ViiA 7
  • StepOnePlus Real-Time PCR System
  • QuantStudio 6/7 Flex Real-Time PCR system
  • 7500 Fast Real-Time PCR System
  • 7900HT Fast Real-Time PCR System

If you are less familiar with the Applied Biosystems real-time PCR platforms, we are happy to help you choose the best instrument for your laboratory’s needs, locate a nearby instrument which you may be able to use, or we can run the hPSC Scorecard assay for you with our CellModel Characterization Services.
