Upcoming Services

New services are under development for establishment of brain organoids and Neuronal functional analysis using Multi-electrode Array (MEA).

Brain Organoids

Generation of 3D whole brain organoids

iPS cells are embedded in Biosilk (a spider silk protein-derived biomaterial) and differentiate in 3D structure to whole brain organoids.

This service takes at least two months or longer and it includes:

  • Thawing and expansion of iPS cells
  • Embedding to Biosilk
  • Daily feeding
  • Neural induction and maturation to whole brain organoids

Useful link for iPS-derived brain organoids

p53 controls genomic stability and temporal differentiation of human neural stem cells and affects neural organization in human brain organoids.

iPS core instruments.

Electrophysiological Analysis by Multi-electrode Array (MEA)


Neuronal functional analysis

High-resolution electrophysiological measurement with BioCam Duplex. Each HD-MEA has 4096 recording electrodes that can be used for cells, organoids and brain tissue.

This service is now available upon request.
