Since 1993, Gibco B-27 Supplement and Neurobasal Medium has been the trusted standard for a variety of neuronal culture applications, with citations in more than 11,000 publications. However, as the desire for more reliable and biologically relevant models has increased, so too has the necessity for a media system that can maintain and mature functional neurons over long periods of time in culture.
To meet this need, Thermo Fisher Scientific has developed the new Gibco B-27 Plus Neuronal Culture System comprising a neuronal basal medium and serum-free supplement that provides significant improvements for long term viability and functionality of primary and PSC-derived neurons in vitro.
Through this educational webinar, made possible by the team at Thermo Fisher Scientific, participants will learn from case studies about these supplements and how they offer a superior solution to the current standards used for culturing primary neurons, and maturing and maintaining hPSC-derived neurons.
The speaker for this event will be Dr. Navjot Kaur, a senior staff scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Kaur earned a doctorate degree in protein biochemistry from Guru Nanak Dev University in India. At Thermo Fisher, she is part of a team focusing on research, development and commercialization of next generation tools and reagents for Neurobiology, stem cell culture and differentiation. She has served as an R&D lead for the launch of over 8 new products in the market spanning the research areas of Neurobiology, cryopreservation, and stem cell differentiation.
LabRoots will host the webinar October 11, 2017, beginning at 8:30 a.m. PDT, 10:30 a.m. CDT. To learn more about this event and to register for free, click here.
