Description

StemPro Neural Supplement is an optimal, convenient, and cost-effective serum-free supplement for the proliferation of mammalian neural stem and progenitor cells such as human and rat neural stem cells (NSC) and glial progenitor cells (GPC). Due to their scarce availability, the in vitro expansion of these cells has been a challenge to academic and clinical researchers. When combined with the appropriate basal medium and growth factors, StemPro Neural Supplement not only supports the expansion of neuronal progenitor cells but also enables the cells to retain their progenitor status and potential to differentiate into neurons and glial cells.

In recent years, there has been an increased scientific interest in studying neural progenitor cells due to their important role in neurogenesis. Recent advances have also pointed to the potential use of neural progenitor cells as effective therapies for neurodegenerative diseases, such as dopaminergic neural progenitor cells for Parkinson’s Disease and oligoprogenitor cells for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and multiple sclerosis (MS).
