Scientist thinking about how to more easily access, culture and transfect primary neural cells

Solving Your Neural Cell Culture Challenges

A typical challenge associated with neural cell isolation is ensuring target cell types were accurately acquired from specific regions of the brain. Lonza solves this challenge by performing extensive testing to ensure all neural cells offered are tissue-specific for the regions of the brain specified.

All primary neural cells are quality tested and guaranteed to perform when used with our optimized neural media and user-friendly protocols. Simply thaw and culture to keep your research moving independently from animal pregnancies or isolation work.

Additionally, Lonza's Nucleofector™ Technology makes non-viral transfection of neural cells easy, efficient and reproducible. A unique combination of electrical parameters, Neural Cell Nucleofector™ Kits and Optimized Protocols helps to achieve immediate transfection success in almost all neuron and glial cells.

Along with our products comes an excellent scientific support team cross-trained in cells, media, 3D cell culture and transfection, helping you set up your experiments successfully.
