We're Ready for the Future

We make iPSCs using a proprietary, 3rd-generation mRNA reprogramming system. In contrast to Sendai and episomal reprogramming methods, our technology is ready to go all the way to the clinic. When transfected mRNA is used to express reprogramming factors there's no need to wait weeks or months for vector to clear, no need to screen iPSCs for sporadic genomic integration or other traces of vector, and no residual risk associated with the possibility of false negatives during the screening process. Our radically accelerated system improves on the already impressive speed and productivity advantages of mRNA reprogramming. The fastest and most efficient method of generating iPSCs yet devised, our system brings benefits in the here and now and for the future.
