Benchtop Automation Trends
Gain a better understanding of current interest in and future deployment of benchtop automated systems.
Tumor Cells Develop Predictable Characteristics
Scientists have discovered that cancer cells at the edge of a tumor that are close to the surrounding environment are predictably different from the cells within the interior of the tumor.
What Makes a Good Scientist?
It’s the journey, not just the destination that counts as a scientist when conducting research.
How Prions Kill Neurons: New Culture System Shows Early Toxicity to Dendritic Spines
Boston University researchers have developed a cell culture system to study prions.
A Boost for Regenerative Medicine
Growing tissues and organs in the lab for transplantation into patients could become easier after scientists discovered an effective way to produce three-dimensional networks of blood vessels, vital for tissue survival yet a current stumbling block in regenerative medicine.

Nanofiber Solutions

As a biologist, little thought is given to the materials which make up the products that we use in our research day-in and day-out. However, it is these materials which form the ‘building block’ or‘scaffold’ of all cell culture research. The intricate detail going into understanding the cellular response is all dependent on the topographical patterns and surface chemistry of the scaffold used to grow these precious cells. Countless studies have shown the importance of choosing the appropriate tissue culture scaffolds: one that mimics the nanofibrous nature of the extracellular matrix for a wide variety of applications including basic cell biology, drug discovery,tissue engineering, cell migration and invasion, and stem cell expansion and differentiation. Cell culture is mainly performed on tissue culture polystyrene (TCPS) multiwell plates as it is cheap,optically clear, and many cells grow well on it. In reality, however, living organisms are made up of an extracellular matrix that presents both aligned physical structure and support to the cells.
