Description: Embryonic stem cells (ESCs), derived from the inner cell mass (ICM) of blastocyst-

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs), derived from the inner cell mass (ICM) of blastocyst-stage embryos, are pluripotent and have a virtually unlimited capacity of self-renewal. They can differentiate into all cell types comprised of all three embryonic germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm and endoderm). The formation of embryoid bodies (EBs) is a principal step in the differentiation of ESCs.  When maintained in the EB formation medium and in the absence of MEF feeder layers, ES cells differentiate spontaneously and form three-dimensional aggregates. This structure facilitates multicellular interactions in which cell-cell contact occurs and gap junctions are established.

- Highly effective in inducing human and mouse embryonic stem cells to form embryoid bodies (EB)

- Batch-to-batch consistency.
