Imaging showing the physiologic alignment of iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes in microHeart 2.5D
microHeart 3D is comprised of a complex mixture of human
iPSC-derived cardiac cells
Native human heart tissue shows organized cells with easily visible striations
Structured Cardiomyocytes for High-Throughput Screening
The StemoniX microHeart platform provides a structured environment for human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived cardiac cells.
In microHeart 2.5D, cells passively align into a physiologically relevant structure that closely represents human heart tissue.
Cardiac cells structured on microHeart 2.5D plates resemble heart tissue alignment, while standard flat cultureware results in a
In microHeart 3D, cardiomyocytes are structured into cardiospheres with uniform, synchronized beating.
Increased expression of key cardiac physiology genes
Enhanced organization of sarcomeres
Distal intercalated discs aligned perpendicularly to fibers
Coherent directionality of contraction
Improved calcium handling
microHeart Cell Ready and Assay Ready products provide an ideal model for cardiotoxicity and cardiac safety studies, high-throughput screening, and drug discovery. The microHeart platform can be customized to suit your discovery needs.
