Long history as a research reagent supplier
Since 1979, Takara Bio has been continuously developing molecular and cellular research reagents for the life science research community. Now, we offer a unique combination of GMP-grade products and gene analysis services to meet your manufacturing and quality-control needs.
Our T-cell immunotherapy products are well-integrated into our T-cell immunotherapy manufacturing service. RetroNectin reagent, a recombinant human fibronectin fragment, is widely used to enhance lentiviral- and retroviral-mediated gene transduction. To meet the clinical research community's needs for a reagent suitable for ex vivo clinical applications, we developed RetroNectin GMP Grade. As T-cell expansion for clinical applications requires additional products, we have expanded our product line to include GMP-grade anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody, T-cell culture media (research grade), and CultiLife culture bags.
Takara Bio also offers GMP-grade stem cell research products. Cellartis DEF-CS 500 Xeno-Free GMP Grade Basal Medium (Prototype) is a proprietary human pluripotent stem cell maintenance medium that complies with the highest conditions of stringency, and is completely free of all animal and human components to avoid introducing any pathogens or immunogens to patients.
