Frequently Asked Questions

Mature Astrocytes have a purity based on our listed QC criteria. Our ICC standards ensure cell markers such as GFAP meet or exceed 85% based off current templates and we have a minimum of 80% viability guaranteed upon recovery in addition to sterility (mycoplasma) testing. With regards to proliferative capacity, there are many variables that can impact growth like seeding densities. When cells are in a logarithmic growth rate the population will double every 24hrs and daily monitoring is required to evaluate the estimated state of confluence.
