Physical Delivery Systems of Reprogramming

The selection of effective and safe delivery systems is critical to achieving successful cell reprogramming with specific reprogramming factors. Creative Bioarray is focusing on helping customers develop physical delivery systems to improve the efficiency and safety of reprogramming. Our advanced reprogramming platform and specialized scientific services will accelerate your research in the field of cell reprogramming.


Large advances have been made in the field of cell reprogramming including iPSC reprogramming and the subsequent development of direct cell reprogramming. Viral vectors have been used as the vector of choice during cell reprogramming because of their high transduction efficiency. However, the unpredictable gene dysfunction, limited DNA packaging capacity, immunogenicity and tumorigenicity of viral gene transmission limit the clinical application of nuclear reprogramming techniques. There is a clear need in the field for new technologies capable of delivering reprogramming factors in a safe and efficient manner for successful translation from laboratory work products to the clinic.

For many years, researchers at Creative Bioarray have focused on developing non-integrative, non-viral methods to introduce transgenes into cells. With extensive experience and expertise in the field of cell reprogramming, we are well-positioned to help our clients develop physical delivery systems for direct delivery of reprogramming factors into the nucleus or cytoplasm by membrane disruption methods, involving electroporation and mechanical disruption.

Physical Delivery Systems

  • Development of Electroporation Techniques for Cell Reprogramming
  • Since it was first reported, electroporation has received much attention as one of the most popular non-viral gene delivery techniques. In order to efficiently transfect cells and avoid excessive cell damage caused by high electric fields, we have developed several electroporation techniques for cell reprogramming.

  • Development of Mechanical Disruption Techniques for Cell Reprogramming
  • Mechanical destruction is a method of destroying cell membranes for transient transmission. Combined with the progress in the field of microfluidics and nanotechnology, our researchers help customers develop mechanical destruction methods and apply them to the field of cell reprogramming.


  • No mutation, no immunogenicity, low or no genetic integration
  • Deliver diversified cargos without size restrictions
  • Rapid and transient transfection
