Primary Rat Cortical Astrocytes 

The cerebral cortex plays a key role in memory, learning, consciousness and the understanding of language.  Primary Rat Astrocytes isolated from early embryonic stage (E19) Sprague-Dawley Rats are cryopreserved at primary passage.  Derived from cortical tissue, Primary Rat Astrocytes are used to support Primary Neurons for electrophysiology and in the study of glial scar formation, neurotransmitter synthesis and recycling.  Post thaw viability is in the range of 70-80%.  Each vial contains approximately 1 million viable cells.
