Anti-SSEA-4 MicroBeads, human

Anti-SSEA-4 MicroBeads, human

Anti-SSEA-4 MicroBeads have been developed for the positive selection or depletion of SSEA-4
pluripotent or tissue stem cells.

Background information

Stage-specific embryonic antigen 4 (SSEA-4) is a glycolipid epitope that is found on undifferentiated human embryonic stem (ES) cells
, induced pluripotent (iPS) cells
embryonal carcinoma (EC) cells
, and embryonic germ (EG)
cells and a variety of somatic stem cells, such as dental pulp stem cells, umbilical cord blood-derived very small embryonic like stem cells (VSELs)
and mesenchymal stromal cells


For positive selection: LS or autoMACS
Columns. For depletion: LD or autoMACS Columns.
