Stem Cell Colony Identification

Life Technologies

Pluripotent stem cell colonies can be identified in a few steps using the Alkaline Phosphatase Live Stain. This nonterminal assay can be used as often as desired to monitor changes in pluripotency without affecting cell viability. The stain is a soluble phosphorylated molecule that stains pluripotent colonies fluorescent green. Cells can then be observed using an FITC filter on a conventional microscope, while feeders and unreprogrammed somatic cells remain unstained.
