Discover our different workflows for microglia and find the one that fits your experimental needs:
Tissue dissociation into single-cell suspensions with high cell viability and a minimum of cell debris is a prerequisite for reliable cell separation, cell culture, and flow cytometry analysis. A dissociation procedure that combines optimized enzymatic treatment using our Tissue Dissociation Kits with gentle mechanical dissociation (gentleMACS) is crucial for the preparation of viable single-cell suspensions.
Our MACS® MicroBead Technology, in combination with the Adult Brain Dissociation Kit provides a gentle technique with minimal manipulation time. It allows you to obtain pure, viable and functional adult microglia.
