AstroMACS Separation Buffer removes dead cells and enhances adult astrocyte culture:
Adult astrocytes were isolated from the brain of 8-week-old mice using the Adult Brain Dissociation Kit and the Anti-ACSA-2 MicroBead Kit in combination with (A) or without (B) the AstroMACS Separation Buffer.
Cells were then cultivated in AstroMACS Medium at a density of 100,000 cells /well in a 24-well Imaging Plate for 7 days. Cells were fixed and stained with Anti-GLAST antibody (green) and DAPI (blue).

Detailed product information

Background information

AstroMACS Medium is an optimized serum-free cell culture medium for primary neonatal and adult mouse and rat astrocytes cultivation. It also allows cell survival and proliferation in a wide range of plating densities and is optimized for low-density plating of neonatal astrocytes. The medium ensures a high survival rate and viability of plated astrocytes, which can be used for different downstream applications.

Applications

  • Cultivation and proliferation of isolated primary neonatal astrocytes in a wide range of plating densities.
  • Cultivation of healthy adult astrocytes, together with AstroMACS Separation Buffer.
