Advancing cell culture research.Optimising spheroid formation
Growing 3D cancer cultures
- The culture surface allows cells to grow in suspension with virtually no cell attachment.
- The surface supports many different cell types and their ability to generate spheroids; studies show that over time the spheroids grow in volume, indicating that the new surface enables consistent, repeatable cell growth.
Promoting formation of embryoid bodies (EB)
- Minimises variability and supports the consistent formation of cancer spheroids that simulate the 3D structures of tumor growth, providing a better model system for studying tumor cell progression and efficacy of anticancer agents in vitro.
- As an important milestone in the differentiation process, the Nunclon™ Sphera™ surface demonstrates superior quality for embryoid body formation of pluripotent stem cells with min. spontaneous differentiation. The resultant cells are able to differentiate into all three germ layers.
