New licensing agreement will deliver luminescent reporter technology into iPSCs

Madison, WI USA. (March 10, 2022)
Promega Corporation (Promega), a leader in providing innovative solutions and technical support to the life sciences industry, and FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc., a leading global developer and manufacturer of human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) technologies, today announced a strategic collaboration to advance novel assay development for drug discovery. Under a multi-year licensing agreement, FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics will offer a wide range of custom differentiated iPSCs integrated with Promega biosensor and intracellular bioluminescent reporter capabilities for researchers and scientists to use as part of novel assay development in the drug discovery process.

The strategic collaboration will merge bioluminescent reporter technology used to study cellular signaling and transcriptional activity in iPSCs, enabling researchers to create novel assays to observe cellular biology in a system that better reflects how cells behave in the human body. Cells that are differentiated from iPSCs have grown in popularity as researchers pursue more physiological models that drive drug discovery assays towards greater human relevance. iPSCs can be differentiated into any type of human cell, including neural, cardiac, hepatic, immune and many other cells critical for the study of human disease.
