SLAS Webinar: Fully Automated 3D Cell Culture Provides Standardized, Biologically Relevant, and High Production for Human Cells

presented by the official scientific journals of SLAS

Wednesday, April 6 / 11:30 a.m. EDT (10:30 CDT, 9:30 MDT, 8:30 PDT)

Growing living human cells in vitro for bio-production, drug discovery and regenerative medicine is challenged by the difficulty in developing methods for reproducibly and cost-effectively growing large number of human cells in a way that represents in vivo cellular environment. 3D cell culture is a discipline that will ultimately replace 2D cell culture, since the use of biologically relevant surfaces, substances, geometries, and stresses produces cells which more reliably express their in vivo phenotypes and physiology. Next generation 3D cell culture systems will virtually eliminate cell misidentification, contamination and infection, while optimizing cell growth and phenotype in order to provide the biotechnology and the reparative/regenerative medical industries with the highest quality products.
