Serum alternatives for culturing neural stem cells

N2 Supplement Series

N2 supplement is an alternative to serum for culturing neural stem cells. It is suited for culturing primary neurons and neural stem cells. Differentiation of neural stem cells is induced by the components of FBS. Thus, serum alternatives like N2 supplement are used in order to maintain undifferentiated states of the cells. There are two products in this series: one prepared with apo-transferrin, and another prepared with holo-transferrin.
