The hPSC Genetic Analysis Kit contains all required components to detect the 8 most common karyotypic abnormalities reported in human embryonic stem (ES) cells and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. This qPCR-based kit enables the genetic screening of multiple human ES and iPS cell lines in a rapid and cost-effective manner, and contains enough material to analyze 20 individual samples in triplicate. It uses double-quenched probes with a 5-carboxyfluorescein (5-FAM) dye to give superior performance over other single-quenched probes.
Specifically, the kit includes qPCR Master Mix, ROX Reference Dye, Buffer and primer/probe mixes designed to detect the critical minimal regions of these 8 commonly mutated regions along with a primer/probe mix to a control location in the genome. Additionally, a genomic DNA control is provided with demonstrated normal copy number over the regions of interest.
Our online Genetic Analysis Application ( www.stemcell.com/geneticanalysisapp ) is designed to help with data analysis and interpretation: simply input qPCR data and the tool will perform statistical analyses, assist with data interpretation, and provide visual representation of the data.
