What plating density should I use for GABANeurons?

You can plate iCell® GABANeurons at various densities to accommodate different application needs. We recommend starting with 125,000 viable cells/cm2 for most cell-based assays. However, the optimal density of iCell GABANeurons per unit of surface area can be assay-dependent and should be determined empirically based on the intended use.
