BALTIMORE, October 3, 2016 – Elixirgen, LLC, a Baltimore-based biotechnology company, today launched Quick-Muscle™ 1.0, a groundbreaking biological reagent that develops skeletal muscle cells from human stem cells in just a few days — a cutting-edge advancement for a laboratory process that previously took a month or longer.
Pre-orders are also being taken for Quick-Neuron™ 1.0, the fastest and most efficient neuron differentiation kit ever available. Quick-Neuron™ 1.0 yields an abundance of neurons in less than one week and will be available in November.
The Quick-Muscle™ 1.0 cocktail allows skeletal muscle cells to be rapidly and efficiently produced from human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells in only four to five days. Quick-Muscle™ 1.0 is the fastest and most effective product on the market. Quick-Muscle™ 1.0 provides fast access to the skeletal muscle cells needed to explore treatments by drug screening or possible cell transplantation therapy for muscle-related diseases such as muscular dystrophy. The possibilities for this innovative technology are endless.
Quick-Muscle™ 1.0 and Quick-Neuron™ 1.0 transform laboratory work. Scientists now have a much more rapid turn-around time, allowing for greater efficiency and larger-scale research.
Elixirgen holds the exclusive license and proprietary technologies for Quick-Muscle™ and other Quick-Tissue™ products.
