Multiplex Kit for Stem Cells
October 2007
SHARING OPTIONS:

Invitrogen Corp. announces the launch of a new kit that allows researchers to quickly and reliably monitor the state of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs). The STEMPRO EZChek Multiplex PCR Kit allows scientists to monitor hESCs with one reaction, using fewer sample cells than ever before.The most important characteristic of ESCs is their pluripotency, or ability to differentiate into all three primitive cell lineages in the body—endoderm, ectoderm and mesoderm. Researchers working with hESCs must continually screen them to ascertain pluripotency. A preferred monitoring method is the use of PCR to amplify specific markers associated with pluripotency. PCR is a sensitive and early measurement of differentiation, but it requires the researcher to sacrifice sample cells, leaving fewer behind for research purposes. The STEMPRO EZChek Kit allows for the analysis of four early differentiation markers using a small sample and a single-tube reaction. Without the kit, researchers need to carry out five separate reactions in five tubes, using many more cells. In addition, the kit requires no extensive additional training to achieve desired results.
