In vitro neural models are powerful tools to study neural function and examine complex disorders of the human nervous system. Neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or ALS result in the progressive degeneration of healthy neurons while neurodevelopmental disorders including autism, ADHD, and schizophrenia alter brain development and impact function. Understanding neuronal activity is the first step in understanding these diseases.
While the biology can be complex, measuring it doesn't have to be. Get the most out of your neural cultures with Axion’s next-generation live-cell analysis tools. Featuring a powerful combination of throughput, resolution, and ease of use, see how we can help accelerate your disease research.
Advantages of live-cell assays for in vitro models of neural disease
See why our live-cell platforms, like Maestro MEA, have become a staple in neurobiology labs:
- Model complex neural circuits – Neural networks are often disrupted in disease. Build in vitro neural circuits and study interactions within cocultures and organoids.
- Bridge the clinical gap – Investigate patient derived cultures in a controlled in vitro environment.
- Monitor disease progression – Watch phenotypes develop over time while preserving the complex structure and communication with noninvasive measurements.
- Screen therapeutics – Test potential therapeutics or screen conditions with a range of throughput options and a simple-to-run assay.
