PODS® - More than growth factors
PODS® enable you to go beyond the constraints of conventional growth factors, controlling their activity rather than limited by their instability. Proven effective in 3D neuronal culture, PODS® provide superior differentiation and maturation of neuronal cells, in-vitro and in-vivo.
Leading researchers at world-class universities are breaking research boundaries. We're so confident about the power of PODS® in your neuronal research, they are backed by a simple 100% money-back guarantee* to work in your lab.
