3D Biomatrix, a leader in the development of three-dimensional (3D) cell culture products, has launched a descriptive video demonstrating to users how to handle and use their Perfecta3D(TM) Hanging Drop Plates both manually and with automated liquid handling systems. The video can be viewed at 3D Biomatrix’s multimedia page.
The Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plate is a versatile 3D cell culture device designed to simplify and streamline spheroid formation, culture, and subsequent testing of the 3D cellular constructs. Spheroid cultures grown in Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plates allow drug discovery researchers to easily mimic tissue metabolic and proliferative gradients, to capture complex cell-matrix and cell-cell interactions, and to monitor cell growth easily and regularly.
The instructional video adds to the wealth of information about 3D cell culture available at the 3D Biomatrix website, including extensive written tutorials on manual and automated pipetting, sample data, and a white paper on 3D cell culture.
“The value of growing cell cultures in a true 3D environment for screening and testing drug therapies has been known for years, but in the past the simplicity has not been there for researchers to adopt,” said Laura Schrader, CEO of 3D Biomatrix. “This video demonstrates how easy it is to use our Hanging Drop Plates to grow and culture individual spheroids in a 384-well plate format.”
The Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plates can be purchased directly from 3D Biomatrix or through distributors that are listed on the 3D Biomatrix website.
