The Neural Tissue Dissociation Kits enable gentle yet effective generation of single-cell suspensions from neural tissues (≤P7), using a combined enzymatic and mechanical dissociation procedure. Using efficient enzymatic dissociation, these kits provide a high yield of viable cells in less than an hour. They are suitable for primary or ES/iPS cell–derived cells, whole brain or tissue sections.
The Adult Brain Dissociation Kit has been developed for the gentle,rapid, and efficient generation of single-cell suspensions from adult brain (>P7) considering the special needs of sensitive brain cells from adult mice or rats during dissociation. The optimized gentleMACS Protocol ensures gentle mechanical dissociation and a high yield of viable cells, after removal of debris and red blood cells.
