Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells
To facilitate research on differentiated cell types and other biomedical investigations, the NIGMS Repository offers human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC) lines derived from apparently healthy individuals or from individuals affected with heritable diseases. These hiPSCs were created using a variety of reprogramming techniques*.

Some of the available hiPSC lines were derived from externally submitted iPSC lines, where a distribution stock was made. Others were derived from established LCLs or Fibroblast lines available in the catalog. In addition to QC tests (viability, contamination, karyotyping, microarray genotyping, and microsatellite matches with the parent cell culture), extensive pluripotency characterizations are performed on each NIGMS Repository hiPSC line. Pluripotency characterizations include the following assays:

  • Surface antigen expression
  • Embryoid body formation
  • PluriTest gene expression assay
A complete Certificate of Analysis (CofA) that includes images and quantitative test results is available for each hiPSC line. The CofA PDF specifies which pluripotency characterizations were performed on each hiPSC line.

The Protocol PDFs outline the proper steps for successful handling of the hiPSCs. Additional information is also found on the CofA PDF, including necessary media components, substrates, passage methods, and split ratios.

* For commercial purposes, please note that Limited Use Label Licenses (LULLs) may apply.
