Human neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSC), such as iCell® Neurons are very attractive for such studies because they exhibit functionality and behavior of mature neurons and are available in large quantities. Live cell assays can be automated with the ImageXpress® Micro system and MetaXpress® software to allow characterization of neurons and neuronal networks for health and extent of the network.
This poster presents examples of the use of these systems to study inhibition of neuronal development and neurotoxicity in assays that are well suited for screening of lead compounds and potentially important for reducing animal experimentation and cost of pre-clinical development.

Fc Effector Bioassays for Rapid and Quantitative Measurement of ADCC and ADCP Mechanisms of ActionPoster
Drug developers are rapidly adopting Fc effector function reporter-based bioassays to measure antibody Fc functions such as ADCC and ADCP activity during the development of therapeutic antibodies. Here we show application of a suite of FcgR Reporter Bioassays to elucidate and characterize antibody MOA.READ MORE
