For simple isolation of neurons from brain tissues

Neuron Dissociation Solutions

Our neuron dissociation solutions can be used to dissociate and isolate neurons from tissues derived from the central nervous system of rat and mouse. It is composed of 3 solutions (enzyme, dissociation, and isolation solutions).
The product is ready-to-use without the need for preparations, and achieves simple isolation of neurons while maintaining high cell viability.


  • Simple and stable isolation of neurons
  • Ready to Use


Reagents needed

  1. Frozen neuron series
  2. Neuron dissociation solutions (code No. 291-78001) or neuron dissociation solutions S (code No. 297-78101)
  3. Neuron culture medium (code No. 148-09671)
When using frozen neurons

 4. Washing solution: Leibovitz’s L-15 medium (code No. 128-06075) or HPSS (+) (code No.128-06075)
