New Reinnervate Whitepaper Includes Details on Live 3D Cell Imaging in 3D Cell Culture Using Alvetex®
News Jan 30, 2012
The whitepaper entitled “Review of imaging techniques compatible with 3D culture of cells’’ covers many different approaches for the visualisation of cells growing in three dimensions, such as that achieved using the company’s alvetex® 3D scaffold. As well as discussing novel applications for the use of live 3D imaging of cells, the whitepaper also provides a solution to the daily challenge of visual inspection to check the health and growth of a culture when growing cells in 3D.
“We are delighted to finally bring scientists a solution for live cell imaging and daily health checks for cells growing in 3D” commented Barry Lynch, Marketing Manager at Reinnervate. “Customers constantly express the desire to be able to grow cells in a more in vivo-like environment, but so far, the ability to check each day for growth and cell health using conventional light microscopes has not been possible with 3D cell cultures. With the publication of this new whitepaper, we can now demonstrate a simple and effective solution. By removing a concern voiced by researchers using cell culture, this advance will make 3D cell culture a much more routine and accessible technique.”
