Other approaches like the formation of embryoid bodies and/or differentiation into specific lineages have also been employed for confirmation but, like gene expression, a standardized test is preferable.
To encourage differentiation into neural cells, the researchers tried converting the iPSCs directly into neural stem cells as neurospheres--culture systems of free-floating neural cells--instead of embryoid bodies that contain cells of other germ layers.
In some protocols, treatment of embryoid bodies (EBs) with different combinations of growth factors was used [70-72].
To validate the system and demonstrate proof-of-concept for its utility in embryoid body formation, production of CD14+CD45+ monocytes from pluripotent stem cells using an embryoid body method was successfully automated on the Biomek 2000 (Eric Zluhan, 2014, manuscript in preparation).
The Nunclon Sphera surface also supports formation of high-quality embryoid body pluripotent stem cells, providing a reliable tool to investigate cell fate potential and lineage specificity of stem cells.
Glypican3 shows patchy positivity in EC, especially in areas of early endodermal differentiation, such as the organoid areas (primitive yolk sac endodermal cavities) of embryoid bodies in the rare polyembryoma.
Therefore, the complete workflow of the EST, including stem cell expansion, embryoid body formation in hanging drops and transfer to 2D conditions will be automated using robotic and microfluidics systems.
Untreated polystyrene plates are the lab tool of choice for growing embryoid bodies and other cells where cell attachment needs to be reduced or avoided.
