Stem cell and iPSC lines take time and resources to establish. Furthermore, maintaining cells in active culture results in cycles of passaging and aging of the cells. Although presumably immortal in their renewal capacity, the stress of in vitro culture on cells is known to cause genetic alterations that eventually may impair the cell line’s capacity to “perform” as desried. For that reason, characterizing, expanding and banking your cells is a critical requirement to protect your valuable biological resource.
REPROCELL has developed and characterized over 100 iPSC lines from a variety of human clinical samples, including from both normal and diseased tissue. That experience ensures that you will receive the best quality cell line and full information disclosure about its features and expected performance. Our experts will also be available to you should there be any need for future advice.
REPROCELL has the experience and capacity to provide outstanding iPSC Expansion, Characterization and Banking services. You can trust our quality and accuracy.
It is highly recommended that you store multiple vials of your valuable cells at multiple redundant sites as a precaution against accidents, power-failures, human error, etc. REPROCELL can provide you this service at our Beltsville, MD (USA) site. REPROCELL USA has decades of experience with massive liquid nitrogen storage facilities including back-up systems for the BioServe biospecimen repository; one of the largest commercial collections in the world. Please inquire if you are interested in using REPROCELL USA to store and safeguard some of your valuable samples at a secondary location.
