Third Generation RNA Kit for Cellular Reprogramming of Fibroblasts, Blood, and Urine
The latest evolution in Stemgent RNA reprogramming, the StemRNA 3rd Gen Reprogramming Kit (formerly called the StemRNA-NM Reprogramming Kit), combines non-modified RNA and microRNA technology to provide a kit for stem cell researchers with a new level of versatility, simplicity and time savings, enabling cellular reprogramming of human fibroblasts, and cells from blood and now urine for difficult to reprogram patient samples.
- Flexible technology generates high-quality human iPS cell lines from multiple target cell types
Out-of-the-box reprogramming of cells from skin (fibroblasts), blood (endothelial progenitor cells; EPCs) and urine (urine-derived progenitor cells; UPCs)
- High efficiency, non-integrating reprogramming
StemRNA-3rd Gen requires a few as four additional reagents. Double stranded microRNAs enhance reprogramming efficiency, providing iPS cells with high efficiency (up to 4% from fibroblasts, up to 3% from EPCs, up to 0.5% from UPCs).
- Time-saving protocol delivers faster results facilitating higher throughput
Colonies ready to pick in 10-14 days from fibroblasts and 12-16 days from EPCs or UPCs. No screening needed

The StemRNA 3rd Gen Reprogramming Kit was used to generate iPSCs from fibroblasts in a microfluidic system that used only 1500 cells in 20 µL of medium. RNA-based reprogramming is ideal for such an application since it does not require extended culture for the elimination of reprogramming vectors.
