Brain Tumor Stem Cell Research

Like neural stem and progenitor cells , brain tumor stem cells (BTSCs) can either be cultured as free-floating aggregates (neurospheres) or as an adherent monolayer of cells. See More NeuroCult™ NS-A Proliferation Kit supports the isolation and proliferation of brain tumor stem cells from both pediatric and adult tumors, and from a variety of central nervous system (CNS) tumor types including astrocytomas, oligodendrogliomas, medulloblastomas and ependymomas. This serum-free proliferation kit allows human neural stem cells to be expanded in long-term culture. For a xeno- and serum-free culture medium, use NeuroCult™-XF Proliferation Medium, designed to support prolonged and reproducible expansion of human neural stem and progenitor cells in culture. These standardized media enable efficient expansion of BTSCs in culture while maintaining self-renewal, proliferation and differentiation potential.
