This article briefly outlines the functional characterization of the Sensory Maturation Maximizer supplement using the MEA system.
Every spike in the traces illustrated below represents individual neuronal firing:
Functional Characterization: TRPv1 – Capsaicin 22 days in-vitro; 60-second trace
Functional Characterization: TRPM8 – Menthol 27 Days in-vitro; 60-second trace
Functional Characterization: Thermoception 23 Days in-vitro; 30-minute trace
So, how does this help in terms of time to assay?
Faster Maturation, Quicker Results
Time to maturation of sensory neurons is reduced by more than 40 days.
- The infection potential was considerably reduced through extended culture
- 10 hours less labor
- 2 less full-media changes
- 15 less half-media changes

About AXOL Biosciences
Axol specializes in human cell culture.
Axol produces high quality human cell products and critical reagents such as media and growth supplements. We have a passion for great science, delivering epic support and innovating future products to help our customers advance faster in their research.
Our expertise includes reprogramming cells to iPSCs and then differentiating to various cell types. We supply differentiated cells derived from healthy donors and patients of specific disease backgrounds. As a service, we also take cells provided by customers (primary or iPSC) and then do the reprogramming (when necessary) and differentiation. Clearly, by offloading the burden of generating cells, your time is freed up to focus on the research. Axol holds the necessary licenses that are required to do iPSC work.
The package wouldn't be complete without optimized media, coating solutions and other reagents. Our in-house R&D team works hard to improve on existing media and reagents as well as innovate new products for human cell culture. We also supply a growing range of human primary cells; making Axol your first port of call for your human cell culture needs.
