Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
3D Biomatrix, a life sciences company developing and marketing revolutionary solutions for three dimensional (3D) cell cultures, was invited by Bioscience Technology to participate in a free webinar, “3D Cell Culture in Drug Discovery and Modeling.” The webinar will air live on May 22 at 11:00 a.m. E.T. Registration details to view the webinar live are available at 3D Biomatrix’s website, and the webinar will later be available on 3D Biomatrix’s website.
In the 3D Biomatrix portion of the webinar, Meghan Cuddihy, Ph.D., will discuss the use of matrix-free spheroid cultures for cancer research and drug discovery. Dr. Cuddihy will talk about 3D Biomatrix’s Perfecta3D(TM) Hanging Drop Plates, which are versatile, matrix-free 3D well plates designed to simplify and streamline spheroid formation, culture, and subsequent testing of 3D cell cultures. The Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plates are compatible with a variety of different cell types. The different applications that will be discussed include co-culture data and preliminary data on anti-cancer drug testing.
Also participating in the webinar is Dr. Erik Miljan, Founding Director of Simply Cells, Ltd. Dr. Miljan will be highlighting the impact on the physiological relevance of in vitro cell based models using matrix proteins and scaffolds.
“This webinar is an exciting opportunity to educate researchers on how their labs can benefit from 3D cell cultures,” says 3D Biomatrix CEO Laura Schrader. “We were happy to be invited by Bioscience Technology, and we think this demonstrates how 3D Biomatrix is a leader in 3D cell culture technologies.”
