About the Pluripotent Stem Cell Culture Virtual Lab Simulation

In the Pluripotent Stem Cell Culture lab, you will culture and expand pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) using a feeder-free system. You will also evaluate the PSCs characteristic cell growth, solve differentiation-related issues and investigate the pluripotency of your PSCs using fluorescence microscopy. Will you be able to maintain the pluripotency of your culture?

Learning Objectives

At the end of this simulation, you will be able to…

  • Define the concept of pluripotent stem cell
  • Describe the required combination of media and matrices that support cell health and pluripotency
  • Describe and perform the critical steps for culturing PSCs:
    • Thawing and plating
    • Evaluating differentiated cells morphology and removing them from the culture
  • Evaluating the pluripotency state of your PSCs using fluorescence microscopy
