This question is part of the following Ask The Expert session:
The use of non-invasive techniques, such as Luminex and Proteome Profiler Arrays, to monitor stem cell differentiation is relatively new. Our initial studies have focused on profiling differentiation of iPSCs into various lineages. We are currently working in-house and with collaborators on ways in which this technology could identify growth factors or cytokines that could be added to improve differentiation success. We are interested in more collaborative opportunities to explore the boundaries of these platforms for predicting and optimizing stem cell differentiation.
