Partnership announces First 3D Cell Culture Development
Jul 22 2021
Through a partnership project, tissue engineering and single-cell technique developers Sphere Fluidics and ClexBio have jointly announced a biocompatible kit that allows plug-and-play generation of defined, reproducible and tailorable hydrogel microstructures for 3D cell culture, organoids, single-cell analysis and many other applications.
Said to overcome challenges of some existing microfluidic hydrogel formation techniques, such as clogging, temperature control or time-critical mixing procedures, it offers potential for researchers to study valuable cells over many weeks rather than days in defined microenvironments that mimic the natural extracellular matrix.
Dr. Xin Li, Associate Director of Science at Sphere Fluidics said: “The CYTRIX Microfluidic Hydrogel Kit mimics the 3D microenvironment and help researchers explore the potential of hydrogel-based microfluidics in tissue engineering, drug discovery and regenerative medicine over many weeks.”
Dr. Armend Håti, CEO and Co-Founder of ClexBio said: “This exciting collaboration with Sphere Fluidics has enabled us to deliver one of the first commercial solutions that allows simple and cell-friendly formation of cell-laden microgels, lengthening the time that researchers can study the contents of microspheres.”
