Rapid and Refined CD11b Magnetic Isolation of Primary Microglia with Enhanced Purity and Versatility Souvarish Sarkar*1, Emir Malovic*1, Brandon Plante1, Gary Zenitsky1, Huajun Jin1, Vellareddy Anantharam1, Arthi Kanthasamy1, Anumantha G. Kanthasamy1 1Biomedical Sciences & Iowa Center for Advanced Neurotoxicology, Iowa State University Here, we present a protocol to isolate microglia from postnatal mouse pups (day 1) for in vitro experimentation. This improvised method of isolation generates both high yield and purity, a significant advantage over alternate methods that allows broad range experimentation for the purposes of elucidating microglial biology.
