Quick-Glia™ Astrocytes - Human iPSC-derived Astrocytes (F, 64 yr donor) - Alzheimer's Disease

Cryopreserved human iPSC-derived astrocytes from Alzheimer's Disease patient (F, 64)
AS-SeV-CW50170
Our proprietary transcription factor-based stem cell differentiation method produces highly pure populations of astrocytes without a genetic footprint. Quick-Glia™ Astrocytes - Human iPSC-derived Astrocytes display typical astrocyte morphology and markers such as S100 Calcium Binding Protein β (S100β), Chondroitin Sulfate Proteoglycan 8 (CD44), Aldehyde Dehydrogenase 1 Family Member L1 (ALDH1L1), and mature astrocyte marker Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein (GFAP). When handled and maintained according to the instructions in this user guide, astrocytes are viable long-term and are suitable for a variety of characterization and neurotoxicity assays.
