P/N: A33134

The  Gibco™ Pluripotent Stem Cell Workshop is a three-day course with both lectures and hands-on laboratory experience in techniques for culturing and characterizing human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), as well as reprogramming techniques for the creation of iPSCs. Whether you are new to pluripotent stem cell research or need a refresher course, our scientists will provide detailed stem cell training so you can feel confident using stem cells in your research.

Each Gibco Pluripotent Stem Cell Workshop is structured as a three-day course with both lecture and hands-on laboratory work. Our expert trainers will guide you through a variety of stem cell techniques and work with you 1:1 to help ensure you are successful in learning these new methods.

You will receive a detailed course guide, containing all lecture materials, laboratory protocols, and troubleshooting tips, so you can get started right away when you return to your lab. And even though we take training very seriously, we might add in some fun things for you to take home as well!

Workshop agenda topics include:

  • Basic maintenance and care of hESC and iPSCs
  • Freezing, thawing, plating, and passaging techniques
  • Culturing PSCs under feeder-dependent  and feeder-free conditions
  • Reprogramming and identification of iPSCs
  • Differentiation and characterization methods for PSCs
