I-Stem has a cryobank which contains about 50 hES cell lines from about 15 monogenic diseases. These lines are imported from academic or private foreign laboratories or have been derived in France from embryos with mutations. Quality control tests are used to analyze their genetic identity and stability, and their undifferentiated state, their potential for differentiation as well has their lack of contamination .These processes are submitted to a perfect traceability as required by the Agence de Biomédicine. I-Stem’s hES bank is listed in the European Human Embryonic Stem Cell Registry.Visit website
I-Stem has a platform for high-throughput screening of libraries of chemical molecules on embryonic stem cells or iPS with genetic defects.
The laboratory has a high-performance robotic platform with miniaturization and standardization of cellular tests as well as the performance of large-scale screening campaigns (10 000 to 40 000 tests per screening campaign) under sterile and reproducible conditions.
