Description: Maximum projection image of 3D neural sphere comprised of astrocytes differentiated from human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs). Images were taken on a Leica DMi8 confocal microscope at 20x. The sphere was stained for S100 (magenta), GFAP (green), and DAPI (blue). Engineered human neural sphere cultures can be used as relevant, high-throughput models for drug discovery and research of neurodegenerative diseases.
