Cellartis human iPS cell-derived cardiomyocytes
An effective tool for in vitro evaluation of cardiotoxicity, drug discovery, and basic research
Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPS-CMs) are emerging as popular tools for cardiac disease modeling because they eliminate the species-specific variations that can make results from animal models difficult to reproduce in humans, and unlike primary cells, are easier to obtain and have a longer lifespan. With more than 15 years of experience in stem cell generation and differentiation, Takara Bio has developed a dedicated portfolio of Cellartis stem cell products, including hiPS-CMs. Our spontaneously beating cardiomyocytes derived from hiPS cells make excellent in vitro tools for the study of human cardiomyocyte function and for cardiac safety pharmacology assays due to their:
- Expression of the major cardiac markers and ion channels
- Functional similarity to adult human cardiomyocytes
- Exhibition of physiologically relevant responses to compounds
