Invitrogen introduces multiplex kit for stem cells

7th November 2007

Invitrogen has launched a new kit that allows researchers to "quickly and reliably" monitor the state of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs).

According to the provider of essential life science technologies for research, production and diagnostics, the STEMPRO EZChek Multiplex PCR kit enables scientists to monitor stem cells with one reaction, using fewer sample cells than ever before.

"The crux of any stem cell researcher’s work is the ability to monitor the differentiation state of hESCs," explained Joydeep Goswami, vice-president of the firm’s stem cells and regenerative medicine division.

"Unfortunately, current processes are laborious and consume more cells, a precious scientific resource," the vice-president continued, emphasising that STEMPRO EZChek makes this important step "less time-consuming and less costly".

Invitrogen is a premier supplier of tools and reagents for stem cell research, offering more than 1,200 products tailored to various parts of the stem cell research workflow for embryonic and adult stem cell populations.

Supplying products and services to support academic and government research institutions and pharmaceutical and biotech companies worldwide, the firm’s own research is focused on breakthrough innovation in major areas of biological discovery including functional genomics, proteomics, bioinformatics and cell biology.
