Since their discovery in 2006, induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) have been commercialized in a number of different ways. iPSCs have been used as tools for drug development and discovery, for toxicology applications, in stem cell biobanking, in personalized medicine, and as research products. While each of these commercial applications is important, this post specifically considers the use of iPSCs as research products – meaning, tools that scientists use in their labs for research purposes and applications.
Specifically, this post explores the breakdown of induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) research products, by category. This analysis is intended to direct the decision-making of research supply companies by indicating where there is high market demand at this time.
