Neural Precursor Cells

Although human iPS cells have many advantages over existing models, one drawback is that differentiation into the desired cell type is a time and labor intensive process. Our proprietary technology allows for rapid, reproducible differentiation of human iPSC-derived neural precursor cells without sacrificing quality.

iPSC-derived Neural Precursor Cells

Elixirgen Scientific’s human iPSC-derived neural precursor cells are created using human iPS cells made available through a license from The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM).

All of our iPSC-derived excitatory neurons are differentiated using our proprietary technology that utilizes a potent cocktail of key transcription factors to transform iPSCs into high-quality, differentiated excitatory neurons.

Advantages

  • Highly pure population
  • No genetic footprint
  • Multiple donors and disease types to choose from
