CPVT Disease Model Cardiomyocytes

Now Available! iCell Cardiomyocytes CPVT (E2311D) RYR2 and Isogenic Control. Take advantage of the latest additions to our cardiac suite. These cardiomyocytes are perfectly suited for disease modeling studies aimed at understanding the physiological consequences of a mutation in the Cardiac Ryanodine Receptor (RyR2) resulting in Catecholaminergic Polymorphic Ventricular Tachycardia.

High-content Assay for Morphological Characterization of 3D Neuronal Networks in a Microfluidic Platform
Develop a high-throughput 3D neurite outgrowth assay using iPSC-derived neurons. 3D cultures are recognized as more closely recapitulating aspects of the human tissues including the architecture, cell organization, as well as cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions. In the application note, we optimize high-content imaging for evaluation of treatment effects on 3D neuronal networks and utilize 3D volumetric analysis to enable characterization of neuronal networks and provide quantitative measurements that can be used for defining EC50 values and comparing toxic effects of selected compounds.
