Figure 1. Depletion of T-Cells and B-Cells from Whole Blood with RosetteSep™ Human Progenitor Cell Basic Pre-Enrichment Cocktail and SepMate™ Tubes
(A) In the donor sample shown above, T-cells (CD3+) represent approximately 21.2% of the PBMC fraction while B-cells (CD19+) are present at 3.4%. (B) The addition of the RosetteSep™ Human Progenitor Cell Basic Pre-Enrichment cocktail efficiently depletes the T- and B-cell population to <1% of the enriched cell fraction.

TNC: total nucleated cell, Average shown in bold (range).
Figure 3. Erythroid Progenitor Cells Are Expanded in StemSpan™ SFEM II with Erythroid Expansion Supplement
(A) Isolated PBMCs were expanded for seven days and then examined by flow cytometry for erythroid progenitor cells, T-cells and B-cells. Representative plots illustrate that erythroid progenitor cells (GlyA+CD71+) are enriched after seven days, though some T-cells (CD3+) and B-cells (CD19+) remain. (B) Use of the RosetteSep™ cocktail to deplete lineage-committed cells leads to increased purity of the expanded erythroid progenitors and little/no contaminating lymphoid cells. Note: same donor sample used for A and B.
Figure 4. Schematic of ReproTeSR™ Reprogramming Timeline
ReproTeSR™ is used during the entire induction phase of reprogramming (day 3 to 21). On days 3 and 5, ReproTeSR™ is added to StemSpan™ growth media (in a fed-batch manner) to facilitate attachment of transfected cells. Attached cells are further cultured in ReproTeSR™ with daily full media changes until putative iPS cell colonies emerge (days 21-28). iPS cell colonies can then be isolated and propagated in TeSR™ media. (mTeSR™1, TeSR™2, TeSR™-E8™).
Figure 5. Blood Cell Reprogramming Efficiencies Are Higher in ReproTeSR™ Medium Compared to in hESC Medium
Efficiency of reprogramming (A) erythroid cells, or (B) CD34+ cells using episomal reprogramming vectors is higher in ReproTeSR™ medium compared to in KOSR-containing hESC medium. Data shown are mean +/- SEM, erythroid cells n=4, CD34+ cells n=5.
Figure 6. Generation of iPS Cells from 1mL of Peripheral Blood
Starting from 1mL of PB, PBMCs were enriched, erythroid progenitors were expanded and reprogrammed in ReproTeSR™. (A) Approximately 75 iPS-like colonies that were positive for alkaline phosphatase expression (blue) were generated. (B-C) iPS cell colonies exhibit compact ES-like morphology with defined borders and high nuclear to cytoplasmic ratio. Representative images of generated iPS cell colonies taken at 20X (B) and 400X (C) magnification are shown.
