TempoVol™-iNStem: Cationic Voltage Biosensor Assay using Human Neural Progenitor Cells
TempoVolTM cationic voltage biosensors are incorporated into human neural progenitor cells. They respond to intracellular ionic changes in the 605nm-625nm fluorescent range (Excitation/Emission = 610nm/625nm), measuring increases or decreases in cytosolic calcium/potassium/proton/sodium concentrations. With excellent signal-to-noise ratios, these calcium biosensors can operate on second-to-minute scales. They can be used for single-cell applications, as well as medium to high-throughput screening platforms.
TempoVol™, a cationic voltage biosensor responds as a cellular fluorescent reporter (Excitation/Emission: 610nm/625nm) and is incorporated into Tempo's iPSC-derived neural progenitor cells, iNStem. iNStem are derived from integration-free induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines under fully defined proprietary neural induction conditions. TempoCal™-iNStem cells are polarized structures when plated as a monolayer in culture and express markers such as Vimentin. We've validated iNStem™ cells to be multipotent neural and glial progenitor cells, as they can be further differentiated into neural and glial cell types under specific in vitro reprogramming conditions. TempoVol™ biosensor is introduced to the cells using proprietary liposome mediated methods.
