The Neurosight-S® from Nexel are a highly pure and electrophysiologically active population of cells derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs). Composed mainly of glutamatergic neurons (the major excitatory neurons in the brain), these novel cells provide a more accurate, scalable and reproducible alternative to rodent primary cell cultures and animal models.
Benefits of using Neurosight-S
• Differentiated from hiPSCs
• Composed of mainly glutamatergic neurons
• Cost effective
• Enables more accurate human neurotoxicity modelling
Neurosight-S TUBB3 & vGLUT1 expression
Neurosight-S is a highly pure population of mature neurons (TUBB3 ≥ 95%)
Neurosight-S - Selective cell death on neurotoxin exposure enables efficient and reliable toxicity testing for novel drug development
