FiPS services

The iPS Core offers:

Generation of iPS cells and epigenetic reprogramming:

  • reprogramming using non-integrating technologies ( RNA amplicons or Sendai vector)
  • phenotypic characterization of pluripotent stem cells
  • maintenance of pluripotency & expansion of human iPS cell lines
  • advanced flow cytometric profiling of pluripotency and lineage differentiation

Generation of iPS derivatives via established protocols:

  • differentiation towards hematopoietic progenitors, myeloid and lymphoid lineage
  • differentiation towards CNS type neurons
  • differentiation towards neural crest derivatives
  • mesenchymal differentiation, adipocytes, osteogenesis

Assistance and training:

  • training of investigators in methods to maintain and differentiate pluripotent stem cells
  • assisting and consulting investigators in developing additional differentiation protocols
