As always, Neuromics greatly appreciates when our products are used in publications. The most recent publication shared by customers took advantage of our mouse Tuj-1 antibody (Cat.#MO15013). In this publication, researchers describe how they created an ex vivo 3D vascularized neural constructs that mimics the function of the blood-brain barrier.
