Cytocybernetics: Rapid and Reliable iPSC derived
Cardiac Myocyte Screening

Human iPSC Derived Cardiac Myocytes
Induced pluripotent stem cell derived cardiac myocytes hold great promise, but they
are limited in their use for studying integrated action potentials, as they lack IK1.
Our patented Cybercyte technology "electronically" expresses IK1, which restores the
physiological resting potential, and enables quantitative analysis of iPSCD action
potentials. Cells can be paced over a wide range of frequencies, and are not
confounded by spontaneous activity. Cells can clearly identified as atrial or
ventricular, which reduces variability and improves reliability.
Screening Services

Action Potential Services:
The effect of compounds on Human iPCS derived cardiac myocyte action potential
duration, restitution properties, EAD/DAD analysis, triangulation, upstroke velocity.
Cells are specifically ventricle or atrial, as needed. Custom protocols can be arranged.

Individual Channels :
Human iPSC derived cardiac myocytes can be used to determine the effect of a
compound on individual cardiac currents in the context of the human myocyte. The
Cybercyte is used to identify cells as ventricular or atrial, then channels are
assessed. Compounds can be tested against IKr, IKto, IKur, INa, ICa. Custom
protocols can be arranged. .
