GIBCO Primary Rat Cortex Neurons are isolated from day-18 rat embryos and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen. Each vial contains 4x10e6 cells⁄ml viable cells (post-thaw). With the cryopreserved Primary Rat Cortex Neurons (E-18), Invitrogen offers neuroscience researchers a flexible, ready-to-use, and quality alternative to acutely isolated neurons. Besides being convenience, these products are developed through vigorous internal research to afford comparable properties, such as viability and cell function, from that freshly isolated They are also highly pure cells containing minimum amount of astrocytes and other glial cells, and are with minimal lot-to-lot variability because of large single lot manufacturing. Unlike the other commercially available primary rat neurons that generally yield about 30% or lower post-thaw viability, Invitrogen cells consistently give post-thaw viability in the range of 50-80%.
