iPSC-derived GABAergic Neurons

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) are a powerful tool for studying neuronal activity in vitro. Human iPS cells overcome many of the limitations of other popular models, such as immortalized cell lines and primary mouse neurons, which can be plagued by reproducibility issues and lack of biological relevance. Although human iPS cells have many advantages over existing models, one drawback is that differentiation into the desired cell type is a time and labor intensive process. To address this research bottleneck, Elixirgen Scientific provides a variety of products and services to make research more efficient. Our proprietary technology allows for rapid, reproducible differentiation of human iPSC-derived GABAergic neurons without sacrificing purity. 


  • Fast differentiation and maturation
  • Highly pure population
  • No genetic footprint


  • Basic research
