iPSC Quality control

Performing quality control on induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) involves various assessments to ensure their pluripotent nature and stability. This is crucial for successful research and various applications. At Oxford StemTech, we offer comprehensive quality control services. Our experienced team of scientists and technicians are dedicated to delivering accurate and reliable results to support your work.​
Our iPSC quality control services include:

Morphological Analysis:

Thorough assessment of stem cell colonies, ensuring they exhibit characteristic morphology and pluripotent features.​​

Pluripotency Marker Analysis:

Precise immunostaining and flow cytometry analysis of pluripotency markers (e.g., OCT4, NANOG, TRA-1-60), ensuring the cells maintain their pluripotent state.​

Differentiation Potential Evaluation:

Induction of stem cells into different cell lineages representative of ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm, followed by detailed analysis of their differentiation potential using immunostaining and gene expression profiling.

Genomic stability

Comprehensive examination of stem cell chromosomal stability through SNP genotyping, enabling the detection of genetic abnormalities or chromosomal aberrations.​

Gene Expression Profiling

Robust analysis of pluripotency-associated gene expression using advanced techniques like quantitative PCR (qPCR) or RNA sequencing, providing insights into the molecular characteristics of your stem cells.​

Mycoplasma Testing

Rigorous screening to detect the presence of mycoplasma contamination, safeguarding the integrity of your stem cell cultures.​

Our services are customisable and can be tailored to your specific requirements.

We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service and supporting the success of our clients' stem cell-based projects. Whether you are engaged in basic research, drug discovery, or regenerative medicine applications, our stem cell quality control services can provide you with the confidence and peace of mind necessary to advance your work.​
