iPS Core
human iPS Cell Facility

The reprogramming facility provides a reprogramming service to supply scientists with human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. Patient-specific iPS cell lines opens up unique opportunities to in vitro study and create cellular models of human disease. The facility reprograms human fibroblast cells using virus-free mRNA-based methods..

National Facility Located at Karolinska Institutet

Our Work

The facility reprograms human fibroblast cells using non integrating mRNA based methods, resulting in iPS cells free of any integrated genetic material.

immuno iPS


The iPS facility is offering a spectrum of service packages from fibroblast cell derivation, reprogramming of fibroblast cells to iPS cells, characterisation of the iPS cell lines and hands-on iPS cell culturing courses.
