21:50 EDT 24th March 2018 | BioPortfolio

Genea Stem Cells Pty Ltd is a subsidiary of Genea Limited (formerly Sydney IVF Limited), a public, unlisted company that has been operating IVF clinics in Australia since 1985. Genea Stem Cells Pty Ltd is governed by the same strong ethical principles and corporate governance practices.

Genea Stem Cells is located in Sydney, Australia and has been supplying commercial stem cell solutions for several years, drawing on an almost 30 year research heritage within Genea.

Genea Stem Cells supplies and develops disease-specific pluripotent and differentiated human embryonic stem cells for use in drug development and research.Our Company’s cellular products are genetically unmodified human cells - the most accurate in vitro reflection of clinical conditions, promising more predictive disease models and thereby reducing the need for animal studies. GSC provides the following products for use in drug development and medical research:

  • The world’s largest private bank of pluripotent human embryonic stem cells. More than 100 cell lines representing almost 30 genetic diseases and a variety of genetic backgrounds. These cell lines are derived in full compliance with international ethical and regulatory guidelines.
  • The world’s only commercially-available, application-ready differentiated disease specific cell types (available from any GSC stem cell line).
  • A unique specialised stem cell medium  (Genea M2) – serum-free, fully-defined and applicable for high throughput screening applications.

As well as providing the above products, we also work collaboratively with industry for custom-developed cell-based assay solutions in drug development.

Stem cell lines derived at Genea Stem Cells are derived from excess ART embryos and those unsuitable for further clinical use. These embryos are excess to the clinical requirements of Genea patients and have been specifically donated for stem cell derivation. Embryo donation for research purposes is subject to strict ethical and regulatory mechanisms. Consent is voluntary, fully informed and offered to couples as an option.
