3. Place the open dish under the microscope and score for good-quality colonies (Fig. 4A). Colonies are chosen based on their morphology and size. Only colonies with irregular tridimensional growth should be picked (Fig. 5A, C, E). Colonies that show signs of differentiation should not be picked (Fig. 5B, D, F). 4. Pick a colony using a P20 tip mounted on micropipetman set at 10 µL and transfer to well with trypsin (Fig. 4B). 5. After picking 12–24 colonies (do not leave colonies for more than 10–15 min in trypsin), incubate the plate for 3–4 min at 37°C.
