NDiff N2 medium citation list
NDiff N2 medium is a serum-free and chemically defined neural supplement based on Bottenstein's original formulation. NDiff N2 medium can be combined with RHB-BASAL media to enable the culture of a wide variety of neural cell types including neural stem cells, neurons, and neuroblastomas. Read below for a citation list of studies in which NDiff N2 medium was used in peer-reviewed basic, translational, preclinical, and biomedical research.
