    Stem Cell Research and Development (R&D) Studies

    Applied StemCell (ASC) offers end-to-end induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-based services from reprogramming to differentiation. iPSCs are a powerful tool that can be incorporated into your basic research, drug discovery, drug screening, preclinical cell regeneration projects, and more. ASC first established its iPSC platform 12 years ago and has continuously worked to optimize its protocols and procedures. ASC's comprehensive iPSC platform offers you affordable and effective solutions for your iPSC-related projects so you can focus on research.

    We can generate your iPSCs from human (e.g., PBMCs, fibroblasts, etc.) or non-human samples using highly optimized feeder-free protocols. Furthermore, ASC's scientists are seasoned genome editing and differentiation experts that can work with you to generate the iPSC disease in vitro models that fit your project requirements. Unlike other iPSC service providing companies, ASC's iPSC platform includes its proprietary TARGATT™ gene-editing technology which allows you to benefit from fast and site-specific, stable integration of large DNA fragments at transcriptionally active safe harbor loci (H11 or ASC2). During your free consultation, our expert scientists can help you select the appropriate services and technologies and design the most efficient project outline so you save time, money, and effort!
