Application Notes: Taking the fear out of iPS cell line development

Despite significant strides in technology and increased access for researchers, iPSC culture remains a challenge, thereby limiting its widespread utility for therapeutic and research use. Common pain points include:

1) iPSC lines are sensitive and easily perturbed, requiring constant maintenance.

2) Poor culture conditions and cell line instability can lead to spontaneous differentiation and loss of pluripotency.

3) Generating monoclonal cell lines is incredibly challenging, with low efficiency and lack of proven clonality.

4) The labor, cost, and reagent burden associated with iPSC maintenance and workflows are incredibly high and often prohibitive for the end user.
