Join us on August 6th for Biocom’s Hot Technology Event sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific.

Organoids, spheroids, and the study of 3D cell culture models show great potential in many applications including disease modeling and regenerative medicine. 3D cellular models like organoids and spheroids offer an opportunity to better understand complex biology in a physiologically relevant context where 2D models have not proven as successful. At Thermo Fisher Scientific, we look to improve advanced culture systems in order for our customers to gain confidence to culture and analyze organoids and spheroids through validated protocols and educational resources.

As part of our 3D initiative, we have been developing various models for recapitulation of more physiologically relevant systems in 3D that include scaffold-free spheroids and organoids. Those systems can be utilized in drug development and discovery and other research that requires longevity and more complex functional culture systems. We have developed them as easy to assemble systems that can be readily set up in your laboratory using readily available cell and reagents, and finally evaluated using analytical tools from Thermo Fisher Scientific.

In this seminar, the following areas of 3D research will be covered; An overview of cell line engineering capabilities including our iPSC-Cas9 cell line, Thermo’s 3D Spheroids and Organoids portfolio, our new hepatic spheroid and stellate culture systems, PSC-derived organoids and HCA analysis of 3D spheroid and organotypic models.
