|Gibco Primary Rat Cortex and Hippocampus Neurons are isolated from day-18 Fisher 344 rat embryos and cryopreserved in liquid nitrogen. These cells offer neuroscience researchers a flexible, ready-to-use, high-quality alternative to freshly isolated neurons.|
Rat cortex and hippocampus neuronal cells
These products are developed through vigorous internal research to afford comparable properties, such as viability, purity, and cell function, but minimize the inherent lot-to-lot variability with cells that are acutely isolated. Unlike the other commercially available primary rat neurons that generally yield about 30% or lower post-thaw viability, Gibco neuron cells consistently give post-thaw viability in the range of 50–80% and cells grown in Neurobasal medium plus B-27 supplements show minimum or absence of glial cell growth.
