Ncyte CNS Neuron Kit II

The Ncyte CNS Neuron Kit II is comprised of two cell types of the human central nervous system (CNS): neurons (glutamatergic, GABAergic and dopaminergic) and astrocytes derived from a common neural precursor. The composition of the culture recapitulates the interplay between excitatory and inhibitory neurons and the establishment of mature neural networks. The formation of neuronal networks, viability in culture, and robust manufacture provide advantages over primary cells and animal models for neuroscience applications.

The Ncyte CNS Neuron Kit II is a tool for drug discovery in neurodegenerative disease and epilepsy, neurotoxicity assays, and disease modeling, through its application in electrophysiological, metabolic and imaging assays.
