Ncyte Astrocyte Kit

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.
