CPD-017 by Kataoka Corporation to Streamline iPSC Processing for the US Market

Los Angeles, California, May 25th, 2022 – Kataoka Corporation (Kyoto, Japan) and Kataoka-SS America Corporation (Carson, CA) have developed the CPD-017, a cell processing platform that uses cutting edge laser and AI technology to purify adherent iPSC cultures.

The CPD-017 uses a platform of integrated technologies to process iPSC samples; built-in phase contrast and fluorescence microscopes to image samples, a tailored, machine-learning AI model to process the images and identify spontaneously differentiated cells, and laser treatment to target discrepant cells with minimal stress to the surrounding environment.

The CPD-017 is now available for purchase – Kataoka Corporation is pleased to announce its first US-based customer, the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Biomanufacturing Center, a division of the Board of Governors Regenerative Medicine Institute.
