iPSC Derived Hepatocytes

DefiniGEN’s induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) differentiation platform generates high quality wild-type and disease cell models. We can produce mature hepatocytes which recapitulate a range of disease phenotypes. We provide off-the-shelf iPSC derived hepatocytes, but we also offer the ability to model various diseases.

Our hepatocytes are highly functional human hepatocyte cells which have normal genetics (wild type donor + karotype verified). The cells display the functional characteristics of primary human hepatocytes including: albumin production, A1AT secretion, glycogen storage, CYP450 expression.
