3D cell culture, organoid formation & biopsies
Key to drug testing is being able to grow cells in an environment that resembles the human body and where cells retain their distinctive characteristics. It has been shown that both mechanical and chemical stimuli have a key impact on cell behaviour. The mechanical properties of our gels can be adjusted simply by dilution with media thus providing a controlled 3D environment. Long term culture of a wide range of cells and tissues from different sources is possible with spheroid and organoid formation providing researchers with a tool to model disease states such as cancer.
