Human iPS cells
Our ready-made human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines were created from samples sourced under stringent requirements, including donor consent, and were characterized according to the highest industry standards.
Successful human pluripotent stem cell culture
Successful expansion of your human pluripotent stem (hPS) cells is crucial following reprogramming, during single-cell cloning/clonal expansion post-editing, and for routine maintenance of your stable cell line. The Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Culture System is an easy-to-use, research-grade system for efficient expansion of hPS cells in a feeder-free, defined environment. The highly reproducible nature of the system, coupled with its ability to support culture as a non-colony type (2D) monolayer, ensure a predictable growth rate and make the DEF-CS culture system ideal for the scaleup of a homogeneous population of hPS cells.
Superior single-cell cloning with the DEF-CS culture system
In the time-lapse images below, a seeded single iPS cell was grown using the research-grade DEF-CS system and followed over eight days to track its emergence into a healthy colony. More data about the suitability of this system for single-cell cloning and for gene editing applications are available in the Stem Cell Learning Center.
