Listed are our core services. These are all performed at iPS Core. Price list can be found at the bottom of the page. We offer a wide range of additional services, these are in part performed at iPS Core, for information se "additional Services".

Fibroblast derivation

Package 1) Establishment of fibroblast cells from skin biopsies

This service takes about 1 month to complete and includes establishing fibroblast cells from a 2-4 mm skin biopsy in one T75 flask or three frozen vials.

Only freshly collected biopsies will be accepted. In the unlikely event that we fail to isolate fibroblasts from properly collected skin biopsies due to errors by the facility, there will be no charge for this attempt. We will ask the investigator to provide a new biopsy to complete the service.

Sendai mediated reprogramming

Package 2) Reprogramming human fibroblast cells using Sendai virus 

This service takes about 3-4 months and includes:

  • Mycoplasma testing, expansion, cryopreservation and set-up of fibroblast cells for reprogramming.
  • Reprogramming using Sendai virus
  • Re-plating of transduced cells onto one 6cm plate with human recombinant laminin coating, daily feeding.
  • Manually picking of minimum 16 good looking colonies one months after transduction
  • Expansion of colonies, feeding daily.

Two clones will be established and frozen. Minimum two vials of each established clone.


Basic iPS clone characterisation

Two iPS clones from each line, go through basic testing, that includes; 

Test for expression of pluripotency factors through RT-PCR and immunocytochemistry. Test for loss of Sendai vector by RT-PCR. All data is delivered to customer. This is part of package 2.
