Stem Cell Biology – Tools for Drug Discovery and Research

 Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells (iPSCs)

Sigma® Life Science provides an unparalleled portfolio supporting stem cell and progenitor cell research which is a complex and exciting field that promises fantastic curative discoveries in numerous areas from cancer and diabetes to neurodegenerative diseases.

Combining gene editing and stem cell expertise, Sigma-Aldrich now offers iPSC-derived neural stem cells, neurons, and astrocytes. These new products, in combination with our existing product portfolio, provide unique and versatile tools for the study of central nervous system (CNS) disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), Parkinson’s disease (PD), autism, schizophrenia, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), as well as for drug screening and toxicology applications in the neural space. These cells come in an assay ready format, paving the way for faster, more reliable stem cell research in the realm of neurodegenerative disease.

In addition to our expansive portfolio of assay ready stem cells, serum-free cell culture products/media, 3D matrices, and growth factors, Sigma Life Science offers custom, engineered cell line solutions through our Cell Design Studio. Choose your favorite host or iPSC line and watch our dedicated team of scientists knock-out, modify, or knock-in your gene of interest.
