Product: Human-induced cortical neurons

Elpis cortical neurons are derived from hiPSCs by using the OPTi-OX system. Elpis has produced homogenous, controllable, and extremely high expression of inducible transgenes NGN2 hIPSCs. These cells, on addition of doxycycline, differentiate within days into pure, mature and functional cortical neurons. Elpis’ neurons are ready-to-culture, for research use. These neurons are suitable as models for research in cell-type specific biology, target validation and drug screening in pharmaceutical R&D, and screening for toxicology. Applications include functional and general neurotoxicity assays. Our cortical neurons are pure (>99%), easy to culture and ready for use without requiring cumbersome cell culture work. Batch-to-batch consistency has ensured that the cortical neurons have been successfully used in very demanding screening conditions where only small changes had to be picked up from background noise.
