High Throughput Measurement of Ca2+ Dynamics for Drug Risk Assessment in Human Stem Cell-derived Cardiomyocytes by Kinetic Image Cytometry

J Pharmacol Toxicol Methods 66(3):246-56

Publication Date: August 25, 2012

Product Type: iCell Cardiomyocytes


iCell Cardiomyocytes were treated with known cardiotoxic and arrhythmogenic drugs and kinetically analyzed for intracellular calcium concentration ([Ca2+]i). A novel kinetic imaging cytometry (KIC) platform was used to achieve automated, high-resolution, and high-throughput single cell measurement of intracellular fluorescent Ca2+ indicators.


iCell Cardiomyocytes showed appropriate biochemical responses to known toxic drug compounds in a high-throughput assay. Data support the use of iCell Cardiomyocytes as a relevant human model system that can be applied in an automated, high-throughput workflow to predict drug-induced cardiotoxicity.

Development of High Content Imaging Methods for Cell Death Detection in Human Pluripotent Stem Cell-derived Cardiomyocytes

J Cardiovasc Transl Res 5(5):593-604

Publication Date: August 16, 2012

Product Type: iCell Cardiomyocytes


iCell Cardiomyocytes were used in a novel, simple, automated, and scalable fluorescent microscopy assay system to simultaneously measure multiple biochemical endpoints including nuclear remodeling, mitochondrial function, apoptosis, and necrosis.


This study demonstrated the use of iCell Cardiomyocytes to assess the effects of drug compounds on multiple cardiac biochemical pathways using an automated high content platform commonly used in the pharmaceutical industry.
