Pluripotent stem cells
At Takara Bio, we are experts in human pluripotent stem cell culture. Whether you want to reprogram fibroblasts or PBMCs to generate human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs), transfer your hiPSCs from another culture medium or a MEF-based culture system to the Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Culture System, or form spin embryonic bodies to assess hPSC pluripotency, we have protocols to guide you through the process.
View our protocols below:
