Ncyte™ Astrocyte Kit
1 vial of cryopreserved Ncyte™ Astrocyte cells containing ≥ 2 M cells, 1 bottle of Neuro Basal Medium A (250 mL), 2 vials of Ncyte™ Astrocyte Supplement (1.25 mL each)
Highly mature model. Ideal for co-culturing with hiPSC-derived neurons. Suitable for neuroinflammatory assays.
This cell model can also be utilized in combination with our Drug Discovery Assay Services
Ncyte Astrocytes display the characteristic star-shaped morphology of astrocytes in culture. They display a high percentage of GFAP-, S100ß- and AQP4-positive cells indicating a homogeneous and mature population. They show supportive function for human iPSC-derived neurons in co-culture enabling long-term studies and more physiological disease modeling.
The kit includes cryopreserved, human iPSC-derived astrocytes, medium and supplement. This ready-to-use kit supports neuroscience research and drug discovery.
