Recent publications have suggested that using 3D tumor spheroids is a more predictive model for preclinical research. Nexcelom Bioscience has developed a standardized microplate method for rapid generation, imaging and analysis of 3D tumor spheroids using the Celigo image cytometer. 40 cancer cell lines’ ability to form spheroids, optimal seeding densities and culture conditions have been established. Protocols measuring tumor growth, viability, migration and invasion have been utilized by many researchers for routine preclinical drug studies.
If you are interested to learn more about how your research might benefit from working with 3D tumor spheroids, this is a great place to start!
This webinar will cover:
- The method for producing spheroids
- How to perform growth assays in 96- and 384-well U-Bottom plates
- How to perform migration and invasion assays
- Time for Questions and Answers
