iPSC Culture Protocol Videos

Watch our iPSC culture protocol videos to learn how to culture iPSCs and iPSC-derived neural cells.

English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish videos are available now, with more languages coming soon!


Assessing induced-pluripotent cells (iPSC) morphology is important to guarantee that the quality of iPSC cultures is high and to ensure that these cells keep their pluripotent state. It is important to do this step every time before manipulating the cells. In this video, we will discuss the morphological characteristics of healthy-looking iPSC colonies and how to spot areas of spontaneous differentiation.

Funding from Tanenbaum Open Science Institute (TOSI) at The Neuro helped make this video possible.

How to Access iPSCs

At the EDDU we have a catalogue of iPSC lines from healthy individuals and from patients with neurological disorders that can be freely accessed for a small fee. Our cells are for experimental use only.

To access the cells, please contact cbig.mni [at] (C-BIG). Click here for further instructions on accessing cells.

To learn more about how the cells are made or for general inquiries, contact us at neuroeddu.mni [at]
