Vizgen Merscope PanNeuro Cell Type Panel

Vizgen has launched its Merscope PanNeuro Cell Type Predesigned Panel for analysis of cell types, neuronal signaling, activity, and connectivity in the mouse brain. The 500-gene panel was constructed using the Allen Mouse Brain Atlas, published literature, and published Vizgen mouse brain datasets. It identifies all major cell types including astrocytes, ependymal cells, immune cells, neurons, oligodendrocytes, peripheral glial cells, and vascular cells; resolves neuronal and non-neuronal cell subtypes; explores functional information for cell subtypes; and investigates interactions across the mouse brain.
