At NeuraCell, we are committed to engaging in life changing research. Do you want a team of dedicated scientists with years of experience to conduct your contract research? Do you value high quality data generated with integrity and scientific rigor? You’ve come to the right place!
We are a not-for-profit core facility that engages in contract research, production of high quality cell lines, and other services. Our group has over 20 years of experience working with various stem cells, including induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), neural progenitor cells (NPCs), Schwann cells, adult retinal pigment epithelial cells (RPE), and everything you need to grow them. We produce forebrain and midbrain organoids, which are the emerging platforms for 3D tissue modeling. Our research covers tau pathology modeling for neurodegenerative diseases. In addition to cells, organoids, and media, we also provide a range of molecular tools including custom lentiviral shRNA and over-expression vectors, single cell sequencing, flow cytometry-fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), and drug screening assays. Contact us for consultation on characterization services to assess how your products or reagents affect stem cell performance and behavior. Give us a call today, we would love to hear from you!

- Adult SVZ Neural Stem Cells
- Any Age Embryonic stem cells from any region of the brain
- Human Retinal Pigmented Epithelial cells
- RPE iPSCs
- Neural Progenitor Cells (NPCs)
- Custom Orders
- High-performance Media formulated according to optimal cell growth conditions.
- Complete defined media for neural stem cell culture
- Complete defined media for human Retinal Pigmented Epithelial culture
We can perform assays to verify how stem cell populations behave in response to certain environments, plastics, reagents, etc. Stem cell characterization is performed using trade secret assays via FACS and cell culture techniques. This can be used for neural stem cells as well as embryonic stem cells
Cell banking solutions shall ensure that their integrity is maintained, and that a sufficient supply is readily available. Here we maintain a master and a working cell bank of high quality. We will also expand cells, harvest cells, generation the freezing medium and thaw cells to test performance.
- Generation of custom lentiviral shRNA constructs
- Generation of custom lentiviral over-expression constructs
- Supply of NSC lines already expressing these shRNA or over-expression constructs
