Assay Development Services

Adiposphere You know about the advantages of 3D cell culture, but are you worried about the time and cost of implementing it? n3D offers services in assay development, where we use our expertise in 3D cell culture to design and implement assays and protocols in your lab. We can work with any cell type to design assays to your exact specifications and throughput, and compare these assays to your existing 2D assays. Our goal is to help you transition to 3D with ease!

BiO Assay™ – High-throughput 3D testing

Website BiO Assay Pic with frame (1)The BiO Assay™ rapidly prints cells using magnetic 3D bioprinting and tracks their dose-dependent response for high-throughput viability testing. This kit combines representative 3D cell culture environments with rapid printing, automated imaging, and high-content analysis to predict human in vivo response with high throughput.

 

 

3D Cell Culture – Fast & Simple

cell_1_circle
Our core technology is the use of magnetic nanoparticles to magnetize cells, which can be levitated and printed easily and rapidly with magnetic forces. With magnetic 3D bioprinting, spheroids can be printed rapidly between 15 min to a few hours, a fraction of the time of other systems.

Magnetic levitation

At n3D, we sell kits (Bio-Assembler™) to magnetically levitate cells. In using magnetic forces to levitate cells, we bring the cells off the stiff substrate, while aggregating them to form larger structures. The system works in petri dishes and multiwell plates with any cell type and no special media, and can be imaged and analyzed like any other 3D culture or microtissue.

High-Throughput Spheroid Printing

n3D introduces its new 384-well Bioprinting Kit for high-throughput spheroid formation. This kit uses magnetic 3D bioprinting to print spheroids rapidly (15 min – 6 h) and reproducibly with as few as 50 cells, saving time and cost compared to other spheroid systems. This system is also ideal for high-content phenotypic screening, using fluorescence and other cell-based assays. Check out some of our results with HepG2 hepatocytes and our product page!
