Neurobasal Media

For over 20 years researchers have been trusting and publishing their experiments using Neurobasal media. Neurobasal medium allows for long-term maintenance of the normal phenotype and growth of neuronal cells, and maintains pure populations of neuronal cells without the need for an astrocyte feeder layer. Gibco Neurobasal Plus Medium is the next-generation version of Neurobasal, designed to enable the highest in vitro survival of primary rodent and human stem cell–derived neurons when used with B-27 Plus Supplement.
