Kit for cell reprogramming

CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit

Newly released, the CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Sendai Reprogramming Kit improves upon the well referenced CytoTune®-iPS Sendai Reprogramming Kit. The CytoTune®-iPS 2.0 Kit is non-integrating and still requires only one overnight incubation compared to multiple days of transductions required for mRNA reprogramming. 

This superior CytoTune® 2.0 Sendai system provides:

  • Increased reprogramming efficiency for even more colonies
  • Lower cytotoxicity to allow for smaller starting cell populations
  • Faster clearance to get to your iPSC experiments sooner

The 2.0 Kit contains a polycistronic vector which offers an increased reprogramming efficiency, up to 1.2%. This polycistronic vector has a different backbone containing new temperature sensitivity mutations to the polymerase-related genes, and this helps to clear the virus faster after reprogramming and causes less cytotoxicity to the cells.
