iCell Neurons for Neuroscience Drug Discovery
Cellular Dynamics International’s human iCell Neurons are designed for use in neuroscience drug discovery, neurotoxicity screens, and other health research.
These human neurons are created from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells in the quantity, quality, and purity required for life science research. The cells exhibit the typical physiological characteristics and responses of the neurons with which we are born. These neurons quickly form connective neuronal networks that are electrophysiologically active, making them useful in a variety of applications commonly used in neuroscience research, including cell viability, ATP production, oxidative stress, neurite outgrowth, electrophysiology, and synaptic neurotransmission assays. The company’s proprietary manufacturing capabilities enable the production of the neurons in industrial quantities with greater than 95% purity. The neurons present a human platform that enables the modelling of healthy neuronal cells to improve the predictability of drug candidate efficacy. Cellular Dynamics International, Inc.,
This Product is made by:

Cellular Dynamics is the world's largest producer of fully functional human cells derived from induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells. In a field only a few decades old, CDI scientists tout more than 300 years combined of stem cell experience. Building on this expertise, our iCell® products provide industrialized quantities of terminally differentiated human cells enabling basic research, efficient drug discovery programs, and reliably predictive toxicity and efficacy screening through in vitro clinical trials.
