StemoniX / Molecular Devices Webinar

Due to the structural and functional complexity of the Central Nervous System (CNS), the ability to obtain accurate and predictive in-vitro models for drug discovery and toxicology screening has been lacking. To fill this gap, StemoniX has developed the microBrain 3D platform: pre-plated neural spheroids composed of human iPSC-derived cortical neurons and astrocytes of uniform composition and size.


This presentation details how the Molecular Devices FLIPR Penta and ImageXpress Micro Confocal systems have been used to functionally and structurally characterize microBrain 3D spheroids from both healthy and disease sources.


Key highlights:

  • Use of microBrain neuronal microspheroids

  • Calcium oscillations in neural spheroids

  • 3D image analysis of compound treated neural spheroids

  • Multi-parametric evaluation of neurotoxicity effects

BIO2020 Digital Panel Discussion

StemoniX CEO, Ping Yeh, participated in a panel on 

Organs on a Chip and AI: Realizing Potential Efficiencies in Drug Discovery. 


This panel explored how highly scalable iPSC-based technologies could deliver significant cost and time savings to the pharmaceutical industry, reduce animal testing, and potentially lead to safer, more effective human clinical trials.
