Human Neural stem cells (hNSCs) are neural progenitor cells that can self-renewal and differentiate into different lineage of neuron and glia cells. NSCs have great potential for the study of neurogenesis and neurodegenerative diseases, and therapeutic transplantation studies.

This product is for research use only.

Product Size

One frozen vial of ~1x106 cells


Human Neural Stem Cells are derived from human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) generated by genome footprint-free episomal reprogramming method.

When culturing in bFGF and EGF containing medium, these cells are able to consistently proliferate without differentiating to neural lineages.

These hNSCs can differentiate into:

  • Neuron > 90% efficiency
  • Astrocyte > 90% efficiency
  • Oligodendrocyte

Shipping / Storage

Ship in dry ice, store at gas phase of liquid nitrogen immediately upon receipt.

Shelf Life

6 months

Manual (protocol)


hNSCs were grown in N2/B27 medium containing bFGF and EGF. Each lot# of hNSCs is tested for growth and viability after recovery from cryopreservation. In addition, each lot is tested for expression of Nestin to ensure its undifferentiating characteristics.
