Stem Cell Services

Coriell’s Stem Cell Biobank (SCB) provides scientists with the opportunity to bank their induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines with us. The core services include establishing, expanding, characterizing, and distributing iPSC lines for our customers. Our scientists follow protocols which have been designed by us specifically for iPSC banking to ensure that our iPSCs meet the same high standards and quality of our other biomaterials.

    The iPSCs distributed by Coriell are strictly for research purposes and cannot be used in human subjects. All terms described in the repository’s Material Transfer Agreement (Assurance Form) for the stem cell line must be agreed to prior to using stem cell lines from Coriell. Investigators must be aware that stem cells require special media and handling. All stem cell lines are shipped frozen on dry ice. Investigators interested in obtaining these lines are encouraged to review the culture protocols and FAQs for freeze recovery, passaging, and cryopreservation information before placing their order. Customers who have technical questions can email scb@coriell.org for further information.

    Please always refer to the individual cell line’s CoA for the specific cell line culture conditions.  Protocols are available on the appropriate repository page but should only be treated as general guidelines.
