In Observance of U.S. Holiday, Memorial Day, Agilent Cross Lab/ iLab Operations Software Support Help Desk will be closed during U.S. hours on Monday May 27th, 2019. We will resume regular U.S. support hours on Tuesday May 28th, 2019. EU and APAC Support will remain open during this time. For urgent matters, please add "Urgent" to the ticket/ email subject or press "1", when prompted, to escalate a call on the iLab Support phone and we will prioritize those requests first.

Stem Cell Core

Overview of Services

The Mission of the Stem Cell Core is to provide research grade induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) and other relevant iPSC-derived cell types to investigators, and to facilitate the generation of clinical quality cells for cell therapy.

iPSC technology is on the cutting edge of modern medical science, generating individualized stem cell therapies from mature cells, such as skin, to provide patient specific progenitor cells for directed repair of damaged tissues. iPSCs can differentiate to all cell types in the body including cardiomyocytes for heart damage, hepatocytes for liver damage, keratinocytes for skin repair, dopaminergic neurons for Parkinson’s disease, alveolar type II cells for respiratory patients, and pancreatic insulin producing islet cells for diabetics. Moreover, iPSC technology has also applied in repairing genetic diseases by correcting the DNA sequences in the patient-specific-derived  iPSC and differentiating the now healthy iPS cells to the desired cells, to be used to replace the abnormal cells. Additionally, iPSC technology is an ideal in vitro model to study disease pathogenesis and drug screening.
