For distributions after February 1, 2021, the cost of obtaining iPSC lines from the KTRC is $450/vial plus overheads ($90). An extra vial of the same line will be $225/vial plus overheads ($45). The recipient will be responsible for shipping costs.
RBK provides human iPSC parental and reporter lines. These tools are designed to enable studies to optimize current or new protocols toward target kidney lineages, adapt differentiation efforts to additional contexts (e.g. bioprinting or scaffold seeding), or monitor the maintenance of cell identity under different culture conditions. The reporter iPSC lines are designed to mark specific kidney cell populations upon differentiation into organoids with various fluorescent proteins. Some versions include cell specific Cre recombinase expression for cell lineage tracing.
Each line is available through request links that initiate a process to connect you with the donating laboratory and the cell distribution center funded by RBK.
Cell lines are stored in the RBK iPSC repository at Washington University's Kidney Translational Research Center (KTRC).
Please allow 4-6 weeks for requesting, granting necessary approvals for and shipping your cell line.
