Anti-SSEA-1 (CD15) MicroBeads, human and mouse

Anti SSEA-1 (CD15) MicroBeads are the first product to allow magnetic cell separation based on the expression of SSEA-1. In less than an hour, it is possible to
  • separate pluripotent mouse ES or iPS cells from heterogeneous cultures, e.g. to eliminate feeder cells,
  • enrich reprogrammed mouse iPS cells,
  • deplete unwanted pluripotent cells from ES or iPS cell-derived differentiation cultures,
  • deplete human ES or iPS cells that have undergone spontaneous differentiation.

Background information

In the murine system, SSEA-1 is one of the key embryonic stem (ES) cell markers associated with the state of pluripotency. It is known to be expressed on undifferentiated murine ES and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.
In contrast, SSEA-1 is not expressed on undifferentiated human ES cells but becomes upregulated during spontaneous differentiation.


For positive selection: MS, LS, XS, or autoMACS
Columns. For depletion: LD, D, or autoMACS Columns.
