Passaging Pluripotent Stem Cells
Pluripotent Stem Cell passaging or dissociating can be accomplished by a number of different methods depending on your culture medium and application.
Whether you prefer to passage your cells enzymatically or manually, Gibco® media provides you with choices for PSC subculture.
