Build high-quality in vitro pain models in 21 days.
Ensure confidence in your workflow with high-quality axoCellsTM sensory neurons differentiated from human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). Derived from healthy consenting donor cord blood, our sensory neurons have been specifically developed for use in neurological microfluidics systems, nociception models and for assessing analgesic drug targets. Our robust, functionally-relevant sensory neurons express over 50 key ion channels and fuel world-leading microfluidic and “organ-on-chip” models.
Supporting quality and consistency
Confidently carry out your neural workflow with iPSCs manufactured in our ISO:9001-accredited production facility, guided by our rigorous quality control procedures and decades of scientific experience. All cells come with a full Certificate of Analysis and are officially certified by HPSCreg®, to ensure ethical and biological conformity for your peace of mind.
Join our customer base of top ten biopharma and academic institutions in building robust, physiologically relevant disease models for research and drug discovery.
How to get high functioning Sensory Neurons:
- You’ll need a Sensory Neuron Kit ax0157
- In this you’ll find Sensory Neuron Cells ax0055 (0.5M) and all reagents*
- Follow the protocol
- 21 days later you will have high functioning sensory neurons
*Additional third party components may be required. Be sure to check the protocol before you start using the sensory neuron kit.
