Gibco® Neural Cell Culture Publication Finder

What is the Publication Finder?

The Publication Finder is a list of over 11,000 publications which reference the use of Gibco® Neural Cell Culture products including B-27® Supplements and Neurobasal® media. We scoured popular publication search  engines (PubMed and Google Scholar) to save you time by putting thousands of references for our market leading products at your finger tips.

You can select to view publications by cell type, disease model, Gibco® reagent cited or you can use your own search term.

A few things before you start:

  • The Publication Finder is a Microsoft Excel workbook which utilizes macros to ease the use of your publication selection. You will need to enable macros within the workbook for the search functionality to work.
  • Due to the amount of data within the publication finder, it is a large file (14MB). Please expect the download or open of this file to take a few minutes. You can confirm the download is occurring by looking at the status in the bottom left of your browser window.
  • The list of publications is compiled from the most popular publication search engines where all aspects of an article were searched (including full text of articles and abstracts)
