Elixirgen Scientific’s proprietary transcription factor-based technology allows rapid and reproducible differentiation of human iPSCs into neurons without sacrificing the purity of the cells. Our Quick-Neuron™ Excitatory – Human iPSC-derived Neurons display typical neurite outgrowth and express a variety of neuronal markers, such as the pan-neuronal marker tubulin beta 3 class III (TUBB3) and the glutamatergic neuron marker vesicular glutamate transporter 1 (vGLUT1). When handled and maintained according to the instructions in this user guide, excitatory neurons are viable long-term and are suitable for a variety of characterization and neurotoxicity assays.

  • Users do not need any additional license for the use of these differentiated cells even when cells are used for high throughput screening or drug discovery.
  • All donor consents include statements on the following:
    • Testing the cells’ DNA (this is referred to as the cell’s genetic code or sequence) and making the information known to other researchers
    • Changing some of the genetic code or sequence within these cells
    • Using cells to test or select drugs to treat disease
    • Transplanting cells or resulting products to humans or animals
      Distributing cells widely (nationally and internationally) for research, training or commercial medical product development
    • Future research and uses unforeseen at this time
  • Donors were screened and negative for HIV, HBV, and HCV. Donors under the age of 18 could opt out of HIV testing; all HCV-positive donors submitted skin punches, not peripheral blood, and were not screened for any infectious agents due to small volume of blood present in punches.
  • Human induced pluripotent stem cells were established by non-integrating episomal reprogramming. Reprogramming and quality control were performed by Cellular Dynamics International.
