Mature, functional human iPSC-derived cells within days, powered by opti-ox™
The future of human health will be defined by technologies that accelerate the world's access to more effective medicines.
Human cells are a cornerstone of fundamental disease research, drug discovery, and clinical translation. Yet, despite decades of research into iPSCs, emerging cures for some of the world’s most pervasive diseases have been bottlenecked by a lack of access to standardised, easy to use and readily accessible human cells.
We built ioCells to solve this challenge.
Developed on our platform, and powered by opti-ox technology, ioCells are human cells precision reprogrammed from iPSCs consistently, at scale. With ioCells, scientists no longer need to battle with variance, unreliability, physiological irrelevance and long experimental timelines. Instead, scientists can finally focus on the next great advances in human health.
ioCells are for research use only.

ioWild Type Cells™
ioWild Type Cells are defined, easy-to-use, functional iPSC-derived human cells from a healthy donor background that are ready for fundamental research and drug discovery experimentation within days.
ioDisease Model Cells are ioWild Type Cells engineered to contain disease-relevant mutations. ioDisease Model Cells and ioWild Type Cells form an isogenic pair allowing scientists to make true comparisons.
We provide our partners with the ability to develop and access any human cell type at scale, removing the experimental burden of cell models that are not translatable, scalable or an accurate representation of disease
Our platform ensures consistency between every batch of cells, overcoming the challenge of data reproducibility.
ioCells generate quality data at industry leading seeding densities. You can do more with every vial as every well saves you money.
Every ioCell has its identity characterised by ICC, RT-qPCR and RNA-Seq at minimum.
ioCells are delivered cryopreserved and require a simple protocol using an open-source medium to get started.
Precision reprogrammed cells mature rapidly, meaning cells are ready for experimentation and data gathering within days post-revival.
With opti-ox technology we can make billions of consistently reprogrammed cells, surpassing the demands of industrial workflows.
Our precision cellular reprogramming technology
Every ioCell is powered by opti-ox.
Using opti-ox, populations of stem cells are precisely and consistently reprogrammed into a chosen cell identity. Each vial of ioCells contains a defined and highly characterised population of iPSC-derived human cells that are ready for quality data production in a matter of days. Their high lot-to-lot consistency provides a reliable cell model that enables scientists to conduct repeatable and scalable experiments in drug discovery and disease research.
