Smart Tips for approaching 3D Biology
imaging in live single cells
Mitochondria are deeply involved both in cell life and death mechanisms. This Application Note shows CELLviewer time-lapse imaging and analysis of live single cells, labeled with MitoGreen (Promokine, Promocell), a green fluorescent dye that selectively stains mitochondria.
3D spheroids culture
with SphericalPlate 5D
for CELLviewer analysis
Conventional 3D cell culture methods have limitations, such as a lack of reproducibility and a wide distribution of spheroid shape and sizes, leading to not comparable results. Sphericalplate 5D® plate is perfectly compatible and integrated in CELLviewer workflow, since it generates a large, homogeneous spheroids population (about 9000 spheroids per plate), that is suitable for CELLviewer 3D culture and time-lapse analysis, thus adding reproducibility and reliability to tests results.
Epi-Fluorescence imaging of
interactions in live spheroids
Tumor microenvironment (TME) has received attention as one of the most important responsible of tumor cell behavior and disease progression. In this application note, the creation of heterotypic spheroids composed of lung tumor cells and fibroblasts cells allow to live image the tumor-stroma interactions in 3D and in dynamics with CELLviewer.
Together delivering a
in 3D cell Biology
The 3D multicellular spheroids offer an exciting model to investigate in vivo-like functionality where cells are grown in physiologically relevant conditions compared to monolayer 2D cell culture. Nevertheless, its wide applications are currently limited due to lack of reliable, reproducible and automated application notes. The Sphericalplate 5D® is an integrated solution in CELLviewer workflow, delivering homogeneous and size-controlled spheroid populations, that tightly fit with the downstream CELLviewer analysis. These two technologies, combined together, represent streamlined and automated 3D cell culture method with enhanced test reproducibility and reliability.
