The European Bank of induced pluripotent Stem Cells (EBiSC) is dedicated to supporting research through provision of a high quality, well characterised collection of hiPSC lines from a range of genetic backgrounds and reprogramming methods. To this end, we have implemented a robust and standardised approach to stem cell banking based on international best practice covering all stages from consent and procurement to distribution.
A standardised process of expansion, cryopreservation and Quality Control at our dedicated central facilities is performed, allowing cell line release for distribution with batch certification. Read more.
In accordance with industry best practice, EBiSC has developed standardised forms of Donor Information and Consent, to support procurement and donation of primary tissue on terms that are suitable for production and sharing of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cell lines, and associated data.
