The EBiSC team is working hard to implement improvements in how EBiSC operates. Due to some short-term disruption, please get in touch via Contact@EBiSC.org if the cells you would like to access are currently listed as unavailable or you are ordering from outside of Europe.

UNEWi021-B

F018 15.8

iPSC line

Stock not immediately available - enquire for details
We are currently making some changes to how EBiSC operates and because of this there is a short period of time where orders cannot be placed.

If you are interested in accessing these cells, please contact EBiSC directly. For more information about the current transition process see here.
A CLIP contains information about a cell line including any specific third party obligations relating to, for example, licensing obligations or the donor consent which affect the use of the cell line.

The EBiSC Access and Use Agreement must be completed along with an individual Cell Line Information Pack for each line. Complete the EAUA and send to Contact@EBiSC.org for countersignature. The EAUA must be fully signed before proceeding with your order.
A batch specific Certificate of Analysis will be available to download once you receive your EBiSC iPSC line.
