Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) is an autoimmune disease which affects the peripheral nervous system. The causes are still unknown but in most cases, the disease develops after a bacterial or viral infection. The infection may trigger the immune system to attack nerve roots and peripheral nerves.
The Dermal Fibroblasts provided have been isolated from a patient clinically diagnosed with GBS and can readily be reprogrammed to induced pluripotent stem cells and differentiated into a range of cells types in your laboratory.
If you would prefer this to be taken care of for you by our team at Axol, we offer a Reprogramming and Differentiation service as part of our Custom Projects
All of the cells provided are tested and are negative for HIV-1, HIV-2, Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C as detected by PCR.
The cells are confirmed to be negative for Mycoplasma and other detectable microbial contamination.
