Millipore Announces Neurite Outgrowth Assay
Product News Aug 09, 2007
Millipore Corporation announced the availability of its Neurite Outgrowth Assay, the newest assay kit in Millipore’s drug discovery product line.
Using high content screening for imaging and analysis of neurite outgrowth and neuronal cell morphology, the kit offers a complete solution for specificity labeling and neuronal cell bodies for High Content Imaging.
The kit utilizes high-quality, validated, target-specific detection reagents for profiling in a variety of species, including human, mouse and rat. Large scale screening is simplified through the assay reagents 24-hour stability at room temperature.
Its primary antibody is immunofluorescence-based to specifically label neurites and neuronal cell bodies in heterogeneous cell populations. High sensitivity-generating images with high signal-to-background ratios facilitate subsequent High Content Analysis, making the kit ideal for screening both inducers and inhibitors of neurite outgrowth neurotoxins.
