Category: Human iPS/ES cell differentiation reagent
Tissue Type: Cholinergic Neurons
Scale: 4 wells of 24-well plate


The Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic – mRNA Kit (Small) facilitates rapid and efficient differentiation of human iPS or ES cells into cholinergic neurons in just 7 days. Our proprietary transcription factor-based stem cell differentiation method uses synthetic mRNAs to produce highly pure populations of neurons without a genetic footprint. Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic differentiated cell cultures display typical neurite outgrowth and express the pan-neuronal marker tubulin beta 3 class III (TUBB3) and the cholinergic marker choline acetyl-transferase (ChAT). When handled and maintained according to the instructions in this user guide, cholinergic neurons are viable long-term and are suitable for a variety of characterization and neurotoxicity assays.


  • Rapid production: Stop waiting weeks. Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic produces cholinergic neurons in under one week.
  • No footprint: Other methods leave behind molecular and genetic traces — Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic doesn’t.
  • Easy process: No more complex steps! Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic has a simple and easy-to-understand protocol.

Protocol Outline


ipsc cholinergic neurons protocol
From Day 7, users may maintain differentiated neurons in the maintenance medium best suited for their needs, though we recommend Quick-Neuron™ Cholinergic – Maintenance Medium.
