TrailBio™ Insulin-Producing Islet-like Clusters

Human iPSC-derived islet-like cells

TrailBio™ Insulin-Producing Islet-like Clusters are highly characterized cells that resemble an immature pancreatic beta cell state. These cells enable the screening of compounds that modulate beta cell function and survival, supporting drug development for diabetes and models for other conditions involving beta cell dysfunction or loss.
TrailBio™ Insulin-Producing Islet-like Clusters are naturally differentiated from human iPSCs using the HD-DoE™ technology platform, meaning scalability is built-in.
Upon thawing (day 1), cells are ready for experimentation and express markers typical of mature beta cells. By simply maintaining cells in culture, they retain their characteristic morphology and marker expression.

The Trailhead Advantage


Human beta cells initially display a typical precursor cell-like morphology. When implanted, these immature islet-like clusters can mature in vivo into insulin-producing cells.


These cells maintain their unmodified genome as they are directly differentiated.

Easy to use

Cryopreserved aggregates arrive ready to be used upon revival. Simple suspension culture protocol.
