Accurate nanoelectrode recording of human pluripotent cell-derived cardiomyocytes for assaying drugs and modeling disease

Abstract The measurement of the electrophysiology of human pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes is critical for their biomedical applications, from disease modeling to drug screening. Yet, a method that enables the high-throughput intracellular electrophysiology measurement of single cardiomyocytes in adherent culture is not available. To address this area, we have fabricated vertical nanopillar electrodes that can …

Expansion of Adherent HEK293t Cells in Flasks in Chemically Defined Cell Culture Media

Workflow Summary: Combine supplements of OptiPEAK HEK293t media. Generate stock solutions and prepare reagents. Adapt HEK293t cells in log phase growth from serum to OptiPEAK HEK293t chemically defined, serum free media. Subculture HEK293t cells every 2-3 days in T-75 flasks, calculating doubling time and population doublings to determine cumulative expansion results. Introduction: For many years, …
