Coat a 24-well culture dish with 0.01% Poly-L-lysine overnight at 37 °C. Wash three times with ddH₂O the following day.
Prepare the following cell culture medium: DMEM containing 10% FBS, 1% penicillin/streptomycin, and 2mM L-glutamine.
Use the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (T) or the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P) to dissociate brain tissue and prepare a single-cell suspension. Follow the protocol of the kit data sheet.

CD11b+ microglia isolated from neonatal mouse brain tissue. CD11b+ cells were isolated from mouse neural cell suspension using the CD11b (Microglia) MicroBeads, an MS Column, and a MiniMACS™ Separator. Cells were fluorescently stained with CD11b-APC and CD45-FITC. Cell debris and dead cells were excluded from the analysis based on scatter signals and propidium iodide fluorescence.

Isolated CD11b/c+ cells
CD11b/c+ microglia isolated from neonatal rat brain tissue. CD11b/c+ cells were isolated from P3 rat brain tissue using the Neural Tissue Dissociation Kit (P), the gentleMACS™ Dissociator, CD11b/c (Microglia) MicroBeads, a MiniMACS™ Separator, and two MS Columns. Cells were fluorecently stained with CD11b/c-FITC in combination with CD45-APC and analyzed by flow cytometry using the MACSQuant® Analyzer. Cell debris and dead cells were excluded from the analysis based on scatter signals and propidium iodide fluorescence.
