Activity of iPS Cell-derived Nerve Cells

Live cell imaging using time-lapse imaging

Points on recording

By capturing the action potential of nerve cells using calcium imaging, the activity can be easily observed on the basis of visual changes.

Recording conditions

  • Magnification: 20x λ lens
  • Filter: GFP
  • Fluorescent reagent: Fluo-8
  • Frame rate: 30 fps
