Molecular Devices discusses stem cells research and the company’s latest technological advancements in this exciting field.
Scientists’ expanding knowledge and understanding of stem cells is transforming the way we research human biology and medicine. Stem cells provide unique ‘native’ human cell types that give researchers new opportunities to study targets and pathways relevant to disease processes. They offer a more reliable model to identify and confirm new drug targets and generate pharmacology and toxicology breakthroughs with strong translation to the clinical setting. Additionally, the application of stem cells in drug development creates a new path to personalised medicine, while at the same time reduces, or even potentially replaces, animal testing.
Molecular Devices are helping scientists make the most of these new opportunities. Their customers are making exciting discoveries in stem cell research every day using enabling solutions, including:
- Cellular imaging platforms, such as the ImageXpress® Micro XLS High-Content Analysis System and new SpectraMax® i3x Multi-Mode Detection Platform with MiniMax™ 300 Imaging Cytometer
- Electrophysiology solutions
- High-throughput cellular screening systems, such as the FLIPR Tetra® System
- Optimised reagents and consumables.
