Detect abnormalities in hPSCs: in-house kit

The iCS-digital TM PSC 24-probes kit allows the detection by digital PCR of more than 90% of recurrent
genomic abnormalities in human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs).

The iCS-digital TM PSC kit is a precise and sensitive test for the detection of the most common genomic defects observed in cultured human Pluripotent Stem Cells (hPSCs). The kit, based on the digital PCR technology, allows the reliable quantification of 24 different DNA targets using eight multiplex assays (Mix 1 to 8). The kit also includes a validated normal genomic DNA control sample (XY).

Data processing, statistical analysis, and graphical representation of the results are performed in an automated and explicit way, thanks to the online iCS-digital TM analysis tool provided by Stem Genomics.
