Build high-quality cardiotoxicity models in 7 days.
Ensure confidence in your workflow with high-quality axoCellsTM ventricular cardiomyocytes differentiated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Derived from consenting donor fibroblasts, our ventricular cardiomyocytes have been specifically developed for use in drug validation and cardiotoxicity screening.
With Axol, you can rely on physiologically relevant cardiomyocytes that can detect action potential duration prolongation and triangulation associated with hERG block and torsades de pointes (TdP), and have been validated against all 28 CiPA compounds, correctly identifying cardiotoxic liability. Further MEA studies have confirmed the correct response to all the major classes of cardioactive drugs. With our functionally relevant and mature cardiomyocytes, you can build robust in vitro models for drug validation and cardiotoxicity screening.
Supporting quality and consistency
Confidently carry out your workflow with iPSCs manufactured in our ISO:9001-accredited production facility, guided by our rigorous quality control procedures and decades of scientific experience. All cells come with a full Certificate of Analysis and are officially certified by HPSCreg®, to ensure ethical and biological conformity for your peace of mind.
Join our customer base of top ten biopharma and academic institutions in building robust, physiologically relevant disease models for research and drug discovery.
How to get highly functional axoCells Ventricular Cardiomyocytes
To ensure simplicity and effectiveness, we’ve developed a kit containing iPSC-derived cells that have been directed down a ventricular cardiomyocyte end-type lineage. Using the easy-to-follow protocol, you can rapidly mature these cells into functional ventricular cardiomyocytes in just 7 days.
- You’ll need a ventricular cardiomyocyte kit ax2500.
- Follow the protocol for use on cell culture plates.
- 7 days later you will have highly functional ventricular cardiomyocytes
*Additional third party components are required. Be sure to check the protocol before you start using the ventricular cardiomyocyte kit.

axoCells ventricular cardiomyocytes can be used to measure a variety of cardiac responses on a number of platforms: action potentials and waveform analysis (patch clamp, automated patch clamp, voltage sensitive dyes (VSD), microelectrode arrays (MEA)), contractility/impedence (FLEXcyte, xCELLigence RTCA), calcium responses (Hamamatsu FDSS µCell, Cell Optiq), morphology (immunocytochemistry) and transcriptomics (RNAseq, qPCR). They have also been used to investigate disease states such as septic cardiomyopathy.
Protocols for the culture of ventricular cardiomyocytes on tissue culture plates, xCELLigence RTCA, FLEXCyte system, Cell Optiq, Hamatatsu FDSS µCell and Axion Maestro Pro are available.
We maintain or exceed industry-level quality with our ISO:9001-accredited production facility, guided by our rigorous quality control procedures and decades of scientific experience.
All cells come with a full Certificate of Analysis and are officially certified by HPSCreg®, to ensure ethical and biological conformity for your peace of mind.
