AMSBIO Publishes Comprehensive Cell Culture Handbook
News Apr 04, 2014
Over the past two decades, many researchers have actively sought ways to culture cells in 3D. The conclusion reached by many researchers is that there is no single optimal solution, each cell type needs a different environment and many biological processes may need specific methods to study them.
Leading the field in the provision of solutions for 3D Cell Culture, AMSBIO’s scientists have distilled the best technologies into a useful guide. Covering everything from innovative 384-well scaffold-based screening through the incorporation of natural ECMs or biomimetics; this handbook is a valuable resource not just for cancer research but also for neuroscience, drug discovery and regenerative medicine applications. An easy-to-use troubleshooting table is included to help researchers obtain the optimal 3D cell culture matrix for different applications.

Fruit flies make for stingy mothers, imparting only a portion of the genetic building blocks their offspring need to survive. Now researchers at Princeton University have shown that the inhibiting mechanism, controlled by an enzyme known as RNR, is actually key to the embryo's survival.READ MORE
