We have established a facility to generate human brain organoids (3D self-organising structures of different regions of the brain used as a model to study brain development) from hiPSC or hESC.
This facility includes: 2 incubators dedicated for work with brain organoids, a biosafety flow cabinet and and an EVOS™ XL Core Imaging System for visualization and imaging. The facility also includes bioreactors for large-scale preparations.
