Scientific advances are often preceded by improvements in the tools available to a particular field. Stem cell science will certainly benefit from the development of improved tools in making the leap from the lab to bedside.


Cell Guidance Systems is a research reagents company that focuses on the development of stem cell research tools. Over the past year, the company has developed two separate technologies that directly address current technology roadblocks for the stem cell field, improving our ability to manipulate and guide cells. Pluripro®


p300 and Pluripro® MATRIX,


which together provide a robust system for confluent culture of human pluripotent cells, were showcased at the ISSCR meeting in Toronto before being launched in July 2010.

amenable to automation. The company’s other key technology platform STAR growth factors, have levels of biological activity significantly above standard growth factors.


Michael Jones, CEO, commented “STAR growth factors typically generate potency ranges more than 100x that of standard growth factors allowing the development of effective protocols for stem cell maintenance and differentiation. STAR growth factors are a


core part of an integrated strategy to bring a series of cutting edge tools to market.”


Cell Guidance Systems has decided to develop a presence in key markets as early as possible and opened its first overseas office in San Diego, California in April 2012. The company continues to rapidly expand sales in all major markets including North American, European and Asian markets.
