Alkaline Phosphatase Live Stain
Alkaline Phosphatase Live Stain is designed to easily identify pluripotent stem cell colonies in a few quick, simple steps.
This non terminal assay can be used as often as desired to monitor changes in pluripotency without affecting cell viability. The stain is a soluble phosphorylated molecule which stains pluripotent colonies fluorescent green. Cells can then be easily observed using a FITC filter on a conventional microscope, while feeders and un-reprogrammed somatic cells remain unstained.
