Cellular Reprogramming, Inc.


Service Pricing
We charge $2000 per line for reprogramming. This price includes a non-refundable $500 upfront component which is invoiced on receipt of your purchase order. The balance of $1500 is billed on delivery of the iPSCs for successful derivations. Our minimum order is 10 lines per customer, corresponding to a $5000 down payment.
Timeline
Most lines spend about 25-35 days in culture, from the thawing of the fibroblasts to iPSC freezedown at p3 or later. Overall turnaround is typically 30-60 days, allowing for the time required to bring batches of lines into culture and the fact that a minority of lines require extra passages before being release-ready. We will keep you posted and offer staged delivery options when a few problematic lines could impact the overall project schedule. Turnaround can also be affected by the number of lines you submit at once, and by current workload. Work queue priority is set by the date of purchase order receipt.
Deliverables
We supply three cryovials of iPSCs per line at p3 or later, each vial suitable for seeding a 6-well format well. These vials represent replicates derived from the same polyclonal culture rather than distinct colonies isolated by picking (see FAQ for more details). Each iPSC line is delivered with a datasheet presenting phase contrast images and DAPI/OCT4/TRA-1-60 immunostaining demonstrating iPSC morphology and generalized expression of canonical molecular markers.
