Attend the workshop of FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc.:

  • Presented by: FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc. and Nanion Technologies GmbH
  • Title: "Implementing Human iPSC-Derived Cells in Early Safety Assessment and Disease Modeling"
  • Tuesday, October 2, 12:30 – 1:30 pm
  • Meeting Room: Hoover


  • T.K. Feaster, Ph.D. Product Manager, FUJIFILM Cellular Dynamics, Inc.
  • Sonja Stölzle-Feix, Ph.D. Director, Scientific Affairs,Nanion Technologies 

Part I: 12:30 PM – 12:45 PM: Dr. T.K. Feaster will discuss the predictive power of human iPSC-derived cells for in vitro toxicity testing. He will highlight toxicology, drug screening, and disease models. Demonstrating increased functionality and throughput valuable for identifying liabilities early in preclinical safety programs.

Part II: 12:50 PM – 1:20 PM: Dr. Sonja Stoelzle-Feix will discuss the effects of “CiPA drugs” on excitation-contraction coupling in iCell Cardiomyocytes^2. She will describe the evaluation of the proarrhythmic potential of 23 blinded drugs on hiPSC-CMs using iCell CM2 and the CardioExcyte 96 at different sites. Ion channel data and myocyte behaviour will be discussed and aligned.

We are presenting the following posters:

  • Poster # 0025
    Title: "Safety Pharmacology measurements within the CiPA initiative using automated Patch Clamp"
