Stem Cell Reprogramming Tools
Reprogramming somatic cells to induced pluripotent stem cells is a critical and potentially time intensive step in your stem cell research. That’s why we offer choices in integration-free reprogramming technologies and services that fit your research and translational needs including our Cell Therapy Systems (CTS) Products, which are designed for clinical and translational research applications. We also provide services – you can do it yourself or let us do it for you.
