Human-Induced Skeletal Myocytes

Product in Development – Coming Soon

ioMYOCYTES/skeletal cells have been reprogrammed from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC) using our precise reprogramming technology: opti-ox¹ (optimized inducible overexpression). Human stem cells, within days, convert into consistent, mature and functional multi-nuclear  myocytes.

Bit Bio myocytes are ready-to-culture for research use. They are suitable as models for research in cell-type specific biology, target validation and high throughput drug screening. Further applications include functional and general toxicity assays.

Our myocytes are pure, easy to culture and ready for use without requiring cumbersome cell culture work.

Unprecedented batch-to-batch consistency allows the use of Bit Bio skeletal myocytes in demanding screening applications where small changes need to be detected against background noise.

ioMYOCYTES/skeletal express skeletal myocyte-specific markers

Immunofluorescence staining at day 10 post revival demonstrates robust expression of components of the contractile apparatus such as Desmin (A), Dystrophin (B), and Myosin Heavy Chain (C), along with the muscle transcription factor Myogenin (C). Cells also demonstrate expression of Troponin with visible striated fibres and multinucleation (D).
