Here we describe a protocol to obtain highly pure cardiomyocytes and neurons from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) via metabolic selection processes. Compared to conventional purification protocols, this approach is easier to perform and scale up and more cost-efficient. The protocol can be applied to hiPSCs and human embryonic stem cells. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Tohyama et al. (2016) and Tanosaki et al. (2020).
