Neuromics' Human Neurons in Action
Our primary human neurons (cat. HNC001) have been busy lately, continuing to become one of our most popular and versatile products. Earlier this month, Japanese researchers published their findings when creating 3D brain-like spheroids containing our primary human neurons. Their results suggest the spheroids mimic in vivo conditions and are suitable for use as an in vitro neurological disease model. Check out the publication for yourself here.Human Neurons in CultureSince the beginning of 2022, our neurons have been cited a number of times spanning various research are...

Introducing our Prostate Cancer Cells Lines
 Check out the OptionsNeuromics is pleased to introduce many of the top human prostate cancer cell lines to our already expansive selection of cell offerings. To complement the DU 145 cells we added earlier this year, Neuromics is now offering VcaP, LNCaP, and PC-3 cells to complete our catalog of human prostate cancer cell lines.Image: VcaP cells in culture.VCaP cells are known for their high androgen receptor and PSA expression. Unlike most other prostate cancer cell lines,LNCaP cells are highly sensitive to androgens and have a low tumorigenicity. Meanwhile,PC-3 cells are noted for their high metastatic potential a...

TRPV1 and Migraines
Conclusion-the present findings indicate that insulin may activate TRPV1 receptors in the trigeminovascular system. Modified TRPV1 receptor function induced by insulin may also increase the sensitivity of both neural and vascular TRPV1 receptor for its agonists. Our data may provide a pathophysiological basis for the increased incidence of migraine in patients with hyperinsulin levels. (Source: Neuromics)

About IBA Lifesciences
IBA Lifesciences ' proprietary Strep-tag ® technology exploits one of the strongest non-covalent interactions in nature: the interaction of biotin and streptavidin. The system is based on the highly selective and easily controllable interaction between the synthetic Strep-tag®II peptide and the specially engineered streptavidin, called S trep-Tactin®, which is one of the most stable proteins known. The Strep-tag®II binds specifically to the engineered streptavidins, Strep-Tactin® and Strep-Tactin®XT, by occupying the binding pocket of the natural ligand biotin. Hence, the interaction is easily reversible by excessive...

Neuromics' FBS and National Cancer Institutes
 Best Price and Performance I was honored to work with Jessey at National Cancer Institute (NCI).The were determining whether to change partners. According to Jessey, there were 24 lab PIs who would be supplied with the winner ' s FBS Although we proved competitive, we were not selected.The study was uconducted with only premium grade FBS (most expensive). We are announcing a new Preferred FBS this Monday 10/25. It works well for supplementing define media and works great for most human primary sells. And works fabulous for human and animal cancer cells.Interested in learning more? Contact me at pshuster@neuromic...
