Description

Name of Cells Human Induced Pluripotent Stem (IPS) Cells
Catalogue Number UBP-0500-002
Product Format Cells in Frozen Vials
Cell Number Sufficient for 4 x T25 flask
GENERAL INFORMATION
Description UBP-0500-001 primary fibroblasts were obtained from a healthy donor. The fibroblasts were reprogrammed by the expression of OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and MYC gene sequences using Sendai viral transduction. This cell line provides a unique model system for better understanding cell development and differentiation, as well as source material for the development of iPSC derived cells.
Cell Type Sendai viral reprogrammed hiPSC
Reprogramming Method Sendai Retroviral expression of OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, and MYC genes
Disease normal
Gender male
Age 31 years
Isolation Date 2018
Source Primary human fibroblast
SAFETY PRECAUTION We highly recommend that protective gloves and clothing always be used, and a full-face mask always be worn when handling frozen vials. It is important to note that some vials leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vessel exploding or blowing off its UBP with dangerous force creating flying debris.
USE RESTRICTIONS: These cells are distributed for research purposes only.
BIOSAFETY LEVEL 2Appropriate safety procedures should always be used with this material. Laboratory safety is discussed in the current publication of the Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and National Institutes for Health.
WARRANTY: The viability of our products is warranted for 35 days from the date of shipment and is valid only if the product is stored and cultured according to the information included on this product information sheet. We list the media formulation that has been found to be effective for this strain. While other, unspecified media may also produce satisfactory results, a change in media or the absence of an additive from our recommended media may affect recovery, growth and/or function of this strain. If an alternative medium formulation is used, our warranty for viability is no longer valid.
