Structural and functional study of the nervous system, also known as Neuroscience, is one of the scientific fields that has always crystallized the hopes and fantasy of humankind — not only in terms of disease understanding and treatment but also in terms of capacity improvement. Therefore, the challenges encountered by neuroscientists are multiple and varied.
For this reason, Bertin Instruments offers a wide range of products, consumables and bioreagents to help neuroscientists at each step of their experiments.
First, the Precellys homogenizers can be used for sample preparation prior to molecular downstream analysis. We present here a case study to illustrate the Precellys usefulness in preparing brain homogenates for RNA extraction. Then, in a second case study, we highlight the use of a Bertin Bioreagent ELISA kit to dose neuronal biomarkers in patient plasma samples. Finally, we show how the InCellis smart imaging system can help accurately measure retina layers thicknesses in a few seconds.
• mRNA expression profiling of neuronal signaling molecules in mouse brains
• Measurement of Plasma CGRP level in Pediatric Migraine Patients
• Measurement of RAT retina layers thickness
