Nuwacell Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. can provide customized hPSC-derived motor neurons (MN) based on the customer needs and requirements.
Nuwacell Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. has mastered the stable and efficient differentiation of hPSC-derived MN technology. Nuwacell® hPSC-derived MN are high-purity motor neurons generated from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSC). The differentiated motor neurons can express motor neuron-specific markers (e.g., ChAT, MAP2, Synapyophysin, etc.), and have the characteristic electrophysiological activity. These differentiated motor neurons are suitable for in vitro studies and cell transplantation studies in disease animal models.
Nuwacell Biotechnologies Co., Ltd. complete the preparation, identification, storage, packaging, logistics and other related services with strict quality standards to meet the scientific research requirements of customers, which ensure the repeatability and reliability of subsequent experiments.
