Research-grade stem cell lines

    The UK Stem Cell Bank provides extensive quality control on available research-grade human stem cell lines. This includes tests to ensure the safety (sterility and mycoplasma), identity (STR profile), and potency (gene profile) of the cell lines. A Certificate of Analysis is provided with each order. The UK Stem Cell Bank also offers technical advice and cell line information to support customers in choosing the most appropriate cell line for their research. 

    To obtain cell lines, visit our Apply for Stem Cell Lines page.

    If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch at: enquiries@ukstemcellbank.org.uk.
