H/M Pluripotent Stem Cell Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Kit Summary Kit Summary For the verification of stem cell pluripotency using four established markers. Key Benefits

Identifying the sources of experimental variability is an important consideration in stem cell research where experiments are costly and time-consuming. A potential source of significant variability arises from the starting population of stem cells which can undergo phenotypic changes in culture. SeeDetails

Changes in stem cell potency over time can give rise to large inter-assay errors and/or contradictory data. The Human/Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Kit offers users an efficient and quantitative method to verify the pluripotency of cells by flow cytometry. Data obtained using this kit can identify and minimize experimental errors introduced by variations in the starting population of cells.

The Human/Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Kit includes four fluorochrome-conjugated primary antibodies, isotype controls and buffers to fix, permeabilize, and wash cells. SeeDetails

Store at 2 C to 8 C in the dark. Use within 6 months of receipt.

Verification of Human BG01V Embryonic Stem Cell Pluripotency by Multi-Color Flow Cytometry. BG01V human embryonic stem cells were stained using reagents included in the Human/Mouse Pluripotent Stem Cell Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Kit (Catalog# FMC001). Cells were simultaneously analyzed for expression of pluripotent markers including SSEA-1, SSEA-4, Oct-3/4, and SOX2 by flow cytometry. A. Flow cytometry data shows that 91.9% of BG01V human embryonic stem cells are positive for both Oct-3/4 and SSEA4 expression. B. Flow cytometry data shows that 88.5% of BG01V human embryonic stem cells are positive for SSEA-4 and negative for SSEA-1, a phenotype consistent with human embryonic stem cells. C. Flow cytometric analysis shows that BG01V human embryonic stem cells express the pluripotent marker SOX2.

Verification of Mouse D3 Embryonic Stem Cell Pluripotency by Multi-Color Flow Cytometry. Mouse D3 embryonic stem cells were stained using reagents included in the Human/Mouse Embryonic Stem Cell Multi-Color Flow Cytometry Kit (Catalog#FMC001). Cells were analyzed for expression of pluripotent markers including SSEA-1, SSEA-4, Oct-3/4, and SOX2 by flow cytometry. A. Flow cytometric analysis shows that 91.1% of mouse D3 embryonic stem cells are positive for both Oct-3/4 and SSEA1 expression. B. Flow cytometric analysis data shows that 82.6% of mouse D3 embryonic stem cells are positive for SSEA-1 and negative for SSEA-4 a phenotype consistent with mouse embryonic stem cells. C. Flow cytometric analysis shows that mouse D3 embryonic stem cells express the pluripotent marker SOX2.

Stability & Storage

Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 C. Do not use past expiration date.

Embryonic stem (ES) cells are pluripotent stem cells derived from the inner cell mass of pre-implantation embryos. Induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells can be generated by somatic cell reprogramming following the exogenous expression of specific transcription factors (Oct-3/4, KLF4, SOX2, and c-Myc). These cell types are capable of unlimited, undifferentiated proliferation in vitro and still maintain the capacity to differentiate into a wide variety of somatic cells. In this capacity, pluripotent stem cells have widespread clinical potential for the treatments of heart disease, diabetes, spinal cord injury, and a variety of neurodegenerative disorders.

R&D Systems offers a wide range of products to support pluripotent stem cell culture and differentiation. Mouse embryonic fibroblasts may be used to maintain and expand pluripotent stem cells in an undifferentiated state. We also offer defined culture media, which are specifically optimized for use with human or rodent pluripotent stem cells. In addition, R&D Systems offers a variety of products to assess differentiation status and identify specific stem cell types of interest, including panels of marker antibodies, primer pairs, multi-color flow cytometry kits, and specialized verification kits.
