  1. Fee for service
  2. Resource Description
    "Newly derived iPS cell lines can be transferred to the investigator without further characterization and validation or they can be further expanded and characterized at the Core. The Core will ask the PI to make a decision for characterization and validation services before freezing down all newly derived iPSC cultures. <strong>New iPSC line characterization</strong> This service takes about 1 month to complete and the following assays are performed: • Immunocytochemistry for 4 pluripotency markers • qRT-PCR analysis for Oct4, Sox2, Nanog, Rex1, and Dmnt3b • Embryoid body formation and qRT-PCR analysis for 2 differentiation markers of each of the three cell lineages <strong>Karyotyping</strong> iPS cell culture will be expanded and live culture will be sent to Cell Line Genetics for G-band karyotyping. <strong>DNA finger printing</strong> Feeder-free iPS cell culture will be expanded and cells will be harvested. Genomic DNA will be isolated from iPS cells and the corresponding parental cell line. DNA will be sent to Cell Line Genetics for Short Tandem Repeat (STR) analysis for originating vs. resulting cell verification."
