New article on Primary Neuron Isolation Kit

We'll help you isolate and culture primary neurons, if you've got the brains for it!

By Douglas Hayworth

In a new product article, Hai-Yan Wu and colleagues present results from product validation experiments with the new Thermo Scientific Pierce Primary Neuron Isolation Kit.

If you have embryonic mouse or rat cortices (cortex) or hippocampi (hippocampus) and wish to isolate and culture neurons for experimentation, the new kit and method provides a simple and efficient protocol to accomplish this procedure. Wu compares the newly developed kit (based on enzymatic digestion with papain) to a do-it-yourself protocol based on trypsin. The new method provides twice the cell yield and increased cell viability compared to the trypsin protocol.
