3D Biomatrix Announces Stipend to Present at Spring 2013 Conferences

3D Biomatrix, which develops and sells tools for drug discovery research and testing that mimic the human cellular environment, announced this week a new stipend program awarding $500 to three researchers to present their work at Spring 2013 conferences.

3D Biomatrix, a leader in three-dimensional (3D) cell culture products, is pleased to announce its new program to award $500 stipends to three researchers to present results they obtained from using Perfecta3D® Hanging Drop Plates at Spring 2013 conferences.

Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plates allow life science researchers to work in an environment that simulates the three dimensions of the human body better than existing two-dimensional (2D) cell culture techniques, such as the Petri dish. Applications of the plates include cancer research and drug development, toxicology testing, and stem cell research.

With one spheroid per well, the plates facilitate the formation, culture, and testing of 3D spheroids and stem cell aggregates, including embryoid bodies, in a standard 96- or 384-well plate format without the aid of coatings or matrices. They are easy to use, and cell growth can be monitored regularly. Media and compounds can be added or removed from the top of the plate without requiring new equipment, and cells can be added for co-cultures. More information can be found on the 3D Biomatrix website.

“Users of our Hanging Drop Plates are reporting exciting results with our 3D cell culture tools that were previously unattainable with typical 2D methods,” stated 3D Biomatrix CEO Laura Schrader. “We want to give back to our users by helping them attend a relevant conference to share their results.“

More information about the conference stipend, including the short application, can be found at 3DBiomatrix.com.
