Clinical-grade iPSC production and banking service

Clinical Grade iPSC Production and Service
For Regenerative Medicine

I Peace aims to provide clinical grade iPSC production and banking services for individuals.

Significance of storing your iPSCs Early

Store younger cells

As you grow older, the DNA in your cells can become damaged. iPSCs made from cells that have less damage are better suited for future therapeutic applications; therefore it is desirable to make and store iPS cells as early as possible. Consider gifting your children and grandchildren with iPSC banking.

Time required for manufacturing and quality evaluation

It takes time to manufacture iPSCs. To ensure that the manufactured iPSCs meet clinical standards, the cells need to be rigorously evaluated for quality—which takes time. We at I Peace have successfully shortened production times with a number of innovations, but it still takes time from when the order is received to when the generated cells are banked.

Prepare for an emergency

Timely treatment is critical for some injuries and illnesses. Considering that the manufacturing and quality evaluation of iPSCs takes time, if the manufacturing process begins after injury or diagnosis, it is possible that a patient misses the critical time window for a successful transplantation. If your own iPSCs have been generated, evaluated, and stored in advance, you will be able to obtain the required types of cells in the shortest possible time and use them for treatment.

For future clinical applications

Research is currently underway for iPSC-derived cell therapy for various diseases. If you generate and store your own iPSCs in advance, you will be able to access them as soon as treatments are approved.

A Guarantee of Safety and Quality

At present, the number of companies and universities capable of producing high-quality iPSCs that can be used for medical treatment is very limited. I Peace’s cell production facility is a clean room that meets the standards set by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare. We have obtained a license from the Kinki Health and Welfare Bureau for manufacturing and processing of specific cells. At I Peace, skilled technicians certified as Clinical Cell Culture Specialists manage the iPSC production process and verify the quality of all generated iPSCs. Furthermore, the culture solution used in the iPSC manufacturing process is GMP* grade and does not use any animal-derived components, leading to iPSCs that are high quality and safer for transplantation. I Peace’s proprietary, fully-closed iPSC automated manufacturing system is ideal for mass production and can efficiently produce iPSCs for many individuals. Our manual production line and system enables flexible iPSC production as needed.

*GMP
Abbreviation for Good Manufacturing Practice. It is a guideline to be followed when manufacturing, to guarantee quality and protect consumers from defective products.

Application to regenerative medicine
Regenerative medicine restores the function of a part of the body lost to injury or illness. The transplantation of cardiomyocyte sheets into the heart of a patient with heart disease, is just one of many examples of effective regenerative treatment. The ideal form of cell transplantation medicine (regenerative medicine) uses autologous iPSCs—created from cells derived from the patient himself/herself. Cell transplantation using iPSCs derived from other donors is accompanied by a risk of immune rejection. Although it is believed that immune rejection is unlikely to occur in iPSCs produced from HLA homozygotes, there is still a chance of immune rejection. There are no cells that match your body better than cells made from your own iPSCs.

 

Find the right medicine for you
Many drugs used for advanced medical care and for intractable diseases have differential efficacy dependent on the patient, and it is of great importance to expediently find a drug dosage or drug cocktail specifically optimized to the patient. Researchers can screen a panel of drugs using somatic cells, such as nerve cells and cardiomyocytes created from autologous iPSCs and identify the most effective drug for you. iPSCs will make personalized or precision medicine possible in the future. 

Process

Inquiries and Informational Sessions

Reach out to us to explore the benefits of iPSC banking and details about the production process.

Blood collection and virus check

Blood is collected to make iPSCs and test for infections.

Manufacturing

We make your iPSCs.

Quality Control

Generated iPSCs are carefully evaluated for quality.

Storage

After checking for quality, the iPSCs are frozen and stored in a liquid nitrogen tank.
