PSCs represent an important tool in a wide range of applications, including basic research, disease modeling, drug discovery, and regenerative medicine. As stem cell cultures are very sensitive and respond to the smallest influence, stable culture conditions are crucial to maintain reliability and reproducibility of experimental data. In this educational webinar we will look at the different cultivation parameters, which can affect the viability and proliferation of PSCs during expansion. Join us to learn more about how to assess the quality of your stem cells and to preserve their pluripotency.
Key learning objectives:
Important parameters for PSC culture: growth surface, medium, and culture environment
Assessing stem cell quality: PSC characteristics and genetic stability
Improving reproducibility: Detecting cryptic contamination (e.g. Mycoplasma, cross-contamination)
