Our model mimic transport properties of the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) due to the formation of tight junctions, higher expression of specific carriers, or great cell viability. We developed a 3D in vitro model of the BBB by culturing brain endothelial cells with pericytes and astrocytes layered in an insert. This model improves endothelial cell polarization and enhances the formation of tight junctions, provide better endothelial cell-to-cell contact that is important for barrier development, and prevent the dilution of secreted neurotrophic factors, and these conditions collectively led to the development of an in vitro model that can truly mimic the BBB.
Models are made to order. Please allow 3-5 weeks for completion.
Models come with media. Additional media can be ordered (catalog # NMBBB01).
