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!


At the EDDU, we developed a method with microfabricated disk (EB disk-948 from eNUVIO) to scale up the generation of hMOs (human midbrain organoids). This opens up the possibility to generate larger numbers of hMOs, in a manner that minimizes the amount of labor required, while decreasing variability and maintaining the viability of these hMOs over time.

This video will describe the methodology to generate hMOs from a single EB-Disk containing 948 microwells.

The Neuro’s EDDU is also pleased to share our updated  protocol for generating dopaminergic neurons from  iPSCs through the use of a  Microfabricated EB Disk. You can access the protocol here:

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]

iPSC Catalogue last updated: August 2023
