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 Sendai viruses, which is a non-integrating method.

Our Work

The facility reprograms human fibroblast cells using Sendai viruses, which is a non-integrating method, resulting in iPS cells free of any integrated genetic material.
