PSC Characterization Tools
Whether you are performing basic or more advanced characterization, validation is always critical in induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) research. From Alkaline Phosphatase Live Stain, which provides quick verification of pluripotency, to TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Panel, which evaluates pluripotency and confirms trilineage differentiation potential, we have the tools you need to characterize with confidence. Our Molecular Probes® and TaqMan® products all can be visualized by the EVOS® FLoid® Cell Imaging Station.
