STEMCELL Technologies to Launch CloneR™ to Facilitate Genome Editing of Human Pluripotent Stem Cells

VERITAS Vision System Is Introduced by Johnson & Johnson

The company will offer live demos of the new system in a wet lab at the Johnson & Johnson booth (#2813) this weekend at the 2021 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and American Society of Ophthalmic Administrators Annual Meeting.

SIBO is a very common disorder where there are excessive bacteria present in the small intestine. The true prevalence of SIBO in the general population is largely unknown, with some studies estimating its occurrence in up to 15% of healthy individuals. It is also largely associated with many other common clinical conditions, including irritable bowel syndrome, where 40-80% of IBS patients have SIBO.

STEMCELL Technologies announces the development of CloneR™, a novel medium formulation to aid researchers in their ability to successfully genome edit human pluripotent stem cells. This supplement represents a dramatic improvement over existing technologies.

Editing the pluripotent stem cell genome relies heavily on the survival of single cells to establish clonal cell lines. CloneR™ is a medium supplement designed for greatly enhancing the cloning efficiency and single-cell survival of pluripotent stem cells. Unlike current methods, CloneR™ will enable the robust generation of clonal cell lines without single-cell adaptation, thus minimizing the risk of acquiring genetic abnormalities. Such irregularities bear a close resemblance to those found in many human cancers, raising safety concerns for the use of these cells in regenerative medicine.

“As the market-leader for the development of innovative products for pluripotent stem cell research, we are delighted to announce the imminent launch of CloneR™,” says Dr. Allen Eaves, CEO and President of STEMCELL Technologies. “We are confident that this new invention will enable researchers by improving their capacity for disease modeling, drug screening and the development of cell and gene therapies for regenerative medicine.”

CloneR™ will build upon STEMCELL’s extensive portfolio of products to support pluripotent stem cell research, including mTeSR™1, the most widely published feeder-free maintenance medium on the market. The CloneR™ supplement will be manufactured using STEMCELL’s rigorous raw material screening and quality control processes certified under ISO 13485, Medical Devices Standards. This will ensure that the final product is of the highest quality, with maximal performance and minimal lot-to-lot variability.
