STEMOD™ Neuroscience Ex Vivo Models Services

Overview Service Features Applications FAQs Scientific Resources Related Services

Introduction of Neuroscience

Neuroscience, also known as neurobiology, is the scientific study of the structure and function of the nervous system. Combined with multiple disciplines, it focuses on the study of the nervous system with different approaches and different scales. Neural tissue damage in the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS) may result in multiple neurological diseases and even life-long disabilities. Neural tissue engineering is a promising strategy for neural repair and neurological diseases treatment. In this case, proper preclinical models are required to mimic the micro-environment. Here, Creative Biolabs has developed the STEMOD™ neuroscience ex vivo models for our clients all over the world.

Organotypic Brain Slice Model

Ex vivo models are mainly developed from primary neuronal cultures or induced pluripotent stem cells derived from patients. Organotypic brain slice cultures have been used for the research of neurodegenerative disorders, such as Huntington's disease (HD), Parkinson's disease, brain stroke, and cerebral ischemia. Compared with in vivo and in vitro platforms, they preserve tissue structures, neuronal activities, synapse circuitry, and in vivo environments. The unique advantages also include low cost, maintenance in culture for weeks, as well as rapid and simple use. Recent studies showed that a series of neuroscience organotypic models have been developed using transgenic mice or wild-type rodents. What's more, the lab-on-a-chip device is also an excellent choice.

  • Q: What types of experiments can be conducted using your ex vivo models?
    A: Our ex vivo models are versatile and can be used for a wide range of experiments, including studying synaptic function, neurotoxicity assays, drug screening, electrophysiological recordings, and investigating disease mechanisms in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
  • Q: How do you ensure the quality and integrity of these ex vivo models?
    A: Quality is our utmost priority. We ensure the integrity of our models through strict protocols, regular testing, and quality control. Each model undergoes a thorough validation process to ensure it accurately represents the cellular and molecular characteristics of the neuron it's designed to model.
  • Q: How long can the ex vivo models be maintained in culture?
    A: The longevity of our ex vivo models depends on various factors such as the specific model type, culture conditions, and experimental requirements. Generally, brain slice cultures and organotypic slice cultures can be maintained for several weeks to months while primary neuron cultures can be sustained for up to several weeks with proper maintenance.
  • Q: Can you provide references or case studies demonstrating the efficacy of your ex vivo models?
    A: Yes, we can provide references and case studies showcasing the efficacy of our ex vivo models in various research applications. Simply contact our team to get detailed resources. These resources demonstrate the utility and reliability of our models for advancing scientific understanding in the field of neuroscience.
