Human organoid models
Advantages of Personalized service
Human organoid models
Short & Long term compound testing
highly physiological human 3-dimension tissues
High throughput and lead compound validation
Neurix offers customized services for organoid applications and drug discovery. Our experienced scientists are happy to work with you in order to understand your needs and meet your objectives.
The services below are examples that have been executed for specific needs.
Organoid generation with custom IPSCs
We generate from your favorite IPS cell line organoids compatible both with high/low throughput for drug screening, or for compound validation with extended readouts.
Custom organoid manufacture
We adapt to your needs and generate following neural tissues from human stem cells depending on your research interests.
Additionally, Dopaminergic neurons (TH positive) as well as motor neurons (Foxp1 positive) can be generated.
Multiple readouts on organoids
High number of readouts can be applied for neuroscience research, and may be adapted to higher throughput for drug discovery.
Fluoresent / luminescent reporter.
As example, the fluorescent synapsin reporter for monitoring of neurotoxicity
Cyto- & neuro-toxicity testing
We perform in routine cytotoxicity assays
We do cell sorting to quantify neural cell populations, or purify newly generated cell lines
Proteomic / genomic analysis
We performed genomic analysis in our glioblastoma invasion model
Performed for deeper neuroscience investigation projects, as example for glioblastoma invasion.
Design and generation of cell-based assays
Our scientist would be happy to meet, and design cell-based assay which suits to your need. We currently develop cell-based assay to assess the quality of a bio-active molecule in a cheap and accurate manner.
Personalized service - Service specifications
Field of application
- Mature tissue: Composed of neurons, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes
- Early tissue: Composed of Neurons, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes progenitors and neural progenitors. The latter cells keep generating newborn neurons in a dynamic process.
- Embryoid tissue: composed of endodermal, mesodermal and ectodermal cells
Neurix’s Minibrain & Neurosphere technology with minimum batch to batch variability guaranteed by extensive quality control of identity (rt-qPCR)
Lead compound validation, high throughput screening & neuroscience research
Short term (7 days) to long term (1.5 month)
