Precise reprogramming of cells

Reprogramming stem cells into functional skeletal muscle using opti-ox™ (9-day time course; final contraction assay by addition of acetylcholine)

opti-ox™ is capable of producing batches of every cell in the human body at scale and gives us the power to precision engineer human cells. This is because it reliably activates specific transcription factors within the cells.

Transcription factors tell a cell what to do because they control the programs (gene regulatory networks) of the cell. Together, these form the operating system of life. opti-ox™ is the ‘enter’ key we can press to run these programs – it is the engineering tool we need to produce consistent cells at scale.
