Presenter: Joe Clayton, Ph.D., Agilent Technologies, Inc.
Three-dimensional (3D) cell culture systems have become a well-established in vitro experimental approach to model human disease for a broad range of research applications. By enabling more physiological relevant cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions, 3D cell cultures present an attractive alternative to conventional 2D model systems. However, the increased complexity of 3D cultures, and growing number of available formats, requires thoughtful consideration to achieve consistent and accurate assay results.
In the first of this two-part educational webinar series on 3D cell culture, we’ll present:
- an overview of available 3D culture formats and reagents
- essential considerations for setting up and optimizing 3D models
- tips for effectively conducting imaging-based 3D cell culture assays
Part two of this series will build on the concepts covered here by exploring the experimental approach and quantitative analysis methods used in a range of 3D cell culture applications.
