NDiff 227 medium citation list
Based on over 10 years of publications, NDiff 227 medium (formerly NDiff N2B27) is based on the classic neural differentiation formulation that uses N2 and B27. This enables simple and efficient differentiation of pluripotent stem cells into the neural lineage. However, NDiff 227 medium is flexible and can also be supplemented with combinations of bFGF, LIF, and BMP4 to enable feeder- and serum-free culture of pluripotent stem cells. Read below for a citation list of studies in which NDiff 227 medium was used in peer-reviewed basic, translational, preclinical, and biomedical research.
