Human Cell Models

<p> iNStem™ cells are induced neural progenitor cells, iAstro™ cells are induced astrocytes, and iOligo™ are induced oligodendrocytes and oligodendrocyte progenitors, all reprogrammed from human fibroblasts or blood cells using footprint-free stem cell technologies. Footprint-free technologies further differentiate the cells into specific human cellular lineage types. These cellular products are also available with various biosensors, which function as reporters of calcium fluctuations in the mitochondria or cytoplasm. The products can be used for applications such as chemical compound screening, toxicity testing, in vitro human cell modeling, and studies of receptor-mediated calcium signaling pathways.</p>
