The human pluripotent stem cell registry (hPSCreg) is a public registry and data portal for human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cell lines (hESC and hiPSC). The Registry provides comprehensive and standardized biological and legal information as well as tools to search and compare information from multiple hPSC sources and hence addresses a translational research need. To facilitate unambiguous identification over different resources, hPSCreg automatically creates a unique standardized name (identifier) for each cell line registered. In addition to biological information, hPSCreg stores extensive data about ethical standards regarding cell sourcing and conditions for application and privacy protection. hPSCreg is the first global registry that holds both, manually validated scientific and ethical information on hPSC lines, and provides access by means of a user-friendly, mobile-ready web application.

European Bank of induced pluripotent Stem Cells (EBiSC) is a not-for-profit iPSC banking initiative to store and distribute iPSC lines (https://ebisc.org/). If you chose to register your lines in EBiSC, they will also automatically be registered in hPSCreg.
