Clinical GMP-grade iPS cell production – Stem Cell Assays

Posted: July 19, 2015 at 8:42 am

Recently, Ive written about transition from iPS cell research to iPS cell large-scale manufacturing and automation. Ive described iPS cell process development in Cellular Dynamics International and New York Stem Cell Foundation Research Institute. Today, Id like to share presentations of 2 more players in the field Lonza and Roslin Cells. Both presentations were recorded at Stem Cell Meeting on the Mesa, held on October 14-16, 2013.

What was especially interesting to see a cost comparison between research and clinical-grade GMP-produced iPS cell lines:

Interestingly, the major cost contributor in GMP-grade iPS cell production is a facility cost. I think, this is a first estimation of cost difference, presented for public.

The framework for establishing clinical-grade iPS cell manufacturing, nicely outlined in the recent article. Id also recommend you to read the following open access articles:
