Why We Chose the TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Assay
Jennifer Moore, RUCDR/Infinite Biologics
 

The hPSC Scorecard™ assay was developed in collaboration with Alex Meissner, and follows from his landmark publication (Cell 2011 144:439–452). The accompanying analysis software gives researchers anywhere in the world the ability to compare the gene expression profiles of their cell lines to a common reference set.

What is it?

The TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Panels quantitatively confirms pluripotency (trilineage differentiation potential)
for both embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell lines. The hPSC Scorecard™ Panel (available in 96 and 384-well format) contains 94 predefined TaqMan® Gene Expression assays (including endogenous controls) dried-down in assay plate wells. The panel of genes was developed in collaboration with Alex Meissner, and based on his landmark publication (Cell 144:439-452 (2011)).


The TaqMan® hPSC Scorecard™ Panel provides:

  • A quantitative assay for confirming pluripotency and trilineage differentiation potential
  • Comparison of expression profiles to a reference standard
  • An easy to use platform with pre-plated assays and dedicated, intuitive analysis software


Overview of protocol:

  1. Test undifferentiated, spontantious differentiation (EB) or directed (monolayer) differentiation samples
  2. Extract and purify RNA
  3. Generate cDNA
  4. Run gene expression panel on a compatible qRT-PCR instrument 
  5. Upload .eds files to the hPSC Scorecard™ Analysis Software
  6. Analyze data and export results from the convenient cloud-based analysis application

How to run the hPSC Scorecard™ Assay
