These products include the potent selective group II glutamate antagonist, LY 341495 and a novel glutamate uptake blocker, selective for EAAT1.

In addition to our glutamate range, we have expanded other product areas, such as apoptosis and cellular signalling – new products include Amyloid beta (1-42) (human) and a variety of kinase inhibitors.

Our team has worked hard to offer these new products at affordable prices (many are at half the price of other suppliers) – whilst still retaining Ascent Scientific's reputation for extremely high quality, purity and accuracy."
