Corning® PureCoat™ Amine Supports Cell Attachment and Differentiation of Neural Cells
8 April 2015

Cultured neural cells are used in vitro as a method to study brain function and metabolism. These cells prefer vessels with coatings such as poly-d-lysine, poly-ornithine, and laminin. Many researchers self-coat vessels to enhance neural cell attachment, a time-consuming process which may result in lot-to-lot and plate-to-plate inconsistencies, often leading to experimental rework. This application note reports that Corning PureCoat amine supports both neural cell attachment and differentiation.
