Effective drug discovery and development relies in large part on the availability of predictive preclinical model systems. Application of human cellular models from tissues which are difficult to access, such as cardiomyocytes and neurons, is still challenging. Technologies based on human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSC) hold great promise to overcome this challenge. Their routine use in industrial drug research requires a constant supply of stem cell-derived cells of consistent high quality. Researchers from Ncardia developed a bioprocess for the large-scale manufacturing of cardiomyocytes derived from a variety of healthy and diseased hiPSC lines.
