Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs)

The discovery in 2006 that human and mouse fibroblasts could be reprogrammed to generate induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) with qualities remarkably similar to embryonic stem cells has created a valuable new source of pluripotent cells for drug discovery, cell therapy, and basic research.

Our stem cell research products have been an integral part of induced pluripotent stem cell research research from the initial discovery of iPSCs to current breakthroughs. Our broad technology platform provides optimized tools for each step of the stem cell workflow: from reprogramming somatic cells to iPSC expansion, validation, and differentiation.

Cultured iPSCs following reprogramming

Reprogramming of somatic cells for induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS cell) generation can be accomplished by a number of technologies. We provide traditional and non-integrating tools for iPSC generation from a range of somatic cell types including our Cell Therapy Systems (CTS) Products which are designed for clinical and translational research applications.

Cultured iPSCs characterized with stem cell markers

iPSC characterization to validate cells and ensure they are pluripotent or have differentiated into the desired cell lineage is a critical step in your research. Our PluriTest compatible PrimeView Global Gene Expression Profile Assays provide rapid verification of pluripotency marker expression. The TaqMan hPSC Scorecard Panel is a quantitative method to confirm trilineage differentiation potential. Our KaryoStat and KaryoStat HD Assays provide whole-genome coverage for accurate detection of chromosomal abnormalities. These three assays provide a complete solution of tools to authenticate your iPSC lines with confidence.
