The Bio-Assembler™ System

The Bio-Assembler system cultures cells in three-dimensions by magnetic levitation. The Bio-Assembler uses nanoparticle-based Nanoshuttle-PL solution to deliver magnetic nanoparticles to cells. Magnetic drives then levitate cells to create the 3D cell growth environment. Using the Bio-Assembler is as easy as performing standard monolayer (2D) culture. Preparation time and cell manipulation requirements are equivalent to 2D culture.

Advantages of n3D’s 3-Dimensional Cell Culturing System:

  • Rapid formation of 3D structures and cell-cell interactions
  • More accurate representation of in vivo tissue
  • Compatibility with virtually any cell type including primary and stem cells
  • Compatibility with any media type, standard culturing protocols, and diagnostic techniques
  • 3D co-culturing capabilities
  • Unique capability for moving and shaping tissue, applicable to invasion studies and tissue engineering

As Simple as 2D

There are only two simple additional steps that differentiate the Bio-Assembler™ from 2D cell culturing:

  • 1) Adding the Nanoshuttle to cells prior to levitation
  • 2) Placing the magnetic drive on top of the cell culturing plate
