Cellular Dynamics Has Manufactured Stem Cells That Differentiate Into Any Human Cell Type

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - In a report in Business Review USA, Robert Palay, CEO of Cellular Dynamics, speaks on the company's manufacturing process of stem cells and induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells for the general public.

Cellular Dynamics International, founded in 2004 by Dr. James Thomson, is the world's largest producer of fully functional human cells derived from iPS cells, which are used in basic research, drug discovery programs by pharmaceutical companies and reliably predictive toxicity and efficiency screening through in vitro clinical trials. What makes pluripotent stem cells different is their ability to differentiate into any cell type from human tissue, or in other words, they can naturally turn into every cell found in the body.

"In one day, Cellular Dynamics can create over one billion of human heart cells in our production facility," Palay says. "We take regular human cells and reverse their developmental clock to turn it into a stem cell, which can grow into any type of cell."
