We offer comprehensive solutions for each step of your research with neural cells from the adult brain.
Our adult brain workflow offers a fast, easy solution to isolate and analyze neural cells from adult rodent brain (>P7). Using the Adult Brain Dissociation Kit, mouse and rat with our gentleMACS™ Octo Dissociator with Heaters, gently dissociates brain tissue obtaining highly pure and viable neural cells. Your neural cells of interest can then be isolated with our MicroBeads. These isolated cells are ready for downstream applications, including cell cultivation or analysis with optimized neural media and specific antibodies.
Dissociation of adult brain tissue is fast and easy with our dissociation kits that are made especially for mice and rats older than P7. Together with the gentleMACS Octo Dissociator with Heaters, neural cells are processed gently and efficiently. The additional debris removal and erythrocyte lysis steps of the Adult Brain Dissociation Kit help to purify the neural cell population. For the delicate research of brain tumors or neural inflammation, we offer the Brain Tumor Dissociation Kit or the Multi Tissue Dissociation Kit 1, respectively.
Isolate highly viable and pure glial cells with our wide range of Microbeads. A very gentle and pure isolation of neurons is possible with the Adult Neuron Isolation Kit, mouse.
Cells processed with our adult brain workflow are compatible with many downstream applications:
Using our adult brain workflow, your neural cells are gently isolated for downstream applications, including single-cell analysis.
Single-cell analysis of both cell populations showed the main glial subtypes in the unseparated neural cell population and several neuronal subpopulations in the isolated neurons fraction. Single-cell analysis of unseparated neural cells and isolated neurons:
