We have been using rat cortices for preparing primary neuronal cultures for the last several months. The quality has been quite good and our yield of viable neurons has been highly reproducible. If you need to prepare neurons on relatively short notice, or strictly for convenience, I highly recommend BrainBits.KMR

Reliiably consistent, viable neurons
This is an excellent product, and a great help if you don't have the facilities or expertise to do the dissections in-house.
It may take some time to fine tune the plating protocol, but we found this has nothing to do with the cells provided, and everything to do with the substrate prepUnknown

Brainbits is a great option especially for new labs just starting out or for research groups that want to venture into what for them might be new territory of neuroscience research. With straightforward protocols and reliably consistent tissue preparations, BrainBits is an excellent way to save time and hassle. Unknown
