Neurobasal Plus Medium is the next-generation of one of the most cited neuronal cell culture products, Neurobasal Medium. It is a neuronal basal medium that provides the highest rates of in vitro survival of primary rodent and human stem cell-derived neurons when used with B-27 Plus Supplement. Neurobasal Plus Medium features an optimized formulation, upgraded manufacturing process, and more stringent quality control of raw materials and final product. These improvements enable the highest rates of neuronal cell survival, improved electrophysiological activity, and enhanced functional maturity versus other neuronal cell culture media systems.

Neurobasal Plus Medium, when combined with B-27 Plus Supplement, offers:
• At least 50% higher survival rate of primary rat neurons compared to classic Neurobasal Medium and B-27 Supplement
• Highest survival rate of primary rat, mouse, and human stem cell-derived neurons compared to other commercially available serum-free neuronal media systems
• Improved electrophysiological activity and maturation—more consistent, stable, and synchronized spontaneous activity in primary rodent neurons after 10 days compared to BrainPhys™ Neuronal Medium
• Accelerates neurite outgrowth and increases the number of synaptic-positive puncta

Available as a 500 mL basal medium, Neurobasal Plus Medium can seamlessly replace other neuronal cell culture media, such as classic Neurobasal Medium. The B-27 Plus Neuronal Culture System is also available for purchase, which is comprised of B-27 Plus Supplement and Neurobasal Plus Medium, offering a convenient and valuable all-in-one ordering solution.
