Patterning tissues for cell microenvironment engineering using the Biopixlar single-cell resolution bioprinter

Join us for an exciting talk by Fluicell CTO Dr. Gavin Jeffries on using high-resolution bioprinting to control cell microenvironment. This webinar is co-organized by the Tissue and Cell Eningeering Society (TCES) and Swift Analytical Ltd. The seminar is chaired by Professor Sarah Cartmell of The University of Manchester. Abstract: The progress of bioprinting technologies […]

Physical cytometry for 3D cell culture – rapid simultaneous determination of weight, size and mass density of spheroids and organoids


With the worldwide need for uniformity in 3D cell culture methods, the focus is no longer whether physical characterization will factor into a workflow, but how is it possible to precisely assess the homogeneity of the 3D sample populations. The scientific landscape strongly requires researchers to correlate physical parameter with those derived from the commonly used in vitro tests. And most importantly, when it comes to culturing 3D cell models as spheroids or organoids, their biophysics holds a biological relevance, thereby representing a potential source of data variability.

Networking matters: Connecting cells into 3D spheroids and their potential in research and pre-clinical applications


The standardization of 3D in vitro model systems in cancer and stem cell research as well as in pharmaceutical applications is an indispensable process due to their potential to resemble the in vivo environment more properly than common 2D systems. Traditional 2D cell cultures offer only restricted cell-cell contacts in one dimension which leads to […]

Label-free, biophysical readouts for analyzing 3D cell culture-based in vitro assays


3D culture systems, like spheroids and organoids, represent useful in vitro models for drug screening and, more broadly, for disease modelling. The possibility to characterize spheroid’s biophysics would considerably increase the knowledge of critical factors in 3D biology, such as cellular density and size-dependent mass transport
