Neural Stem Cell Lines
Neural stem cells (NSCs) are pluripotent cells in the nervous system that are capable of self-renewal and infinite proliferation without limit to produce differentiated progenitor cells. The progenitor cells then differentiate into basic lineages of nervous system, including neurons, astrocytes, and oligodendrocytes. The use of neural stem cells in research and medicine is becoming increasingly popular. A breakthrough research in recent years has revealed that neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes come from neural stem cells located in specific areas of the brain. This conclusion subverts the long-standing perception that neuronal tissues cannot be regenerated. This discovery reveals the important clinical application of neural stem cells in the treatment of central nervous system diseases including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and spinal cord repair.
Creative Biolabs provides researchers with ready-to-use neural stem cells derived from various sources. These products include novel stem cell lines derived from adult, embryonic neural tissue and iPS cells. We also provide an array of products to fully characterize neural stem cells and differentiated progeny, including based media, optimized serum-free expansion and differentiation media, media supplements, substrates, and growth factors, as well as a complete list of antibodies and kits.
For different research needs, please select the appropriate product from the following product categories to support neural stem cell engineering, differentiation and analysis.
