Human Stem Cell Facility

Human embryonic (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSCs) facility

We have established a facility which handles only hESCs and hiPSCs. This facility harbours 2 incubators dedicated for work with these cell types, a dissection hood and a biosafety flow cabinet. A stereo microscope for isolation of clones and a Zeiss microscope for visualization and imaging are also available. Stem cells are handled separately from other cell types and liquid nitrogen storage containers harbouring cell stocks are also dedicated to stem cells to avoid potential contamination.
