Beyond ‘simple’ biology – turning organoids, spheroids, and 3D tissue models into physiologically relevant high-content assays for drug discovery

11 December 2018 | By

Drug discovery is still hampered by the routine use of cell-based models that often fail to recapitulate the truly relevant biological complexity of the corresponding disease. Just moving from two- (2D) towards three-dimensional (3D) cell culture model systems like spheroids and organoids is not enough to generate truly representative and…

Application note: Production of human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cortical neurospheres in the DASbox® Mini Bioreactor System

29 November 2018 | By

There is substantial interest in the scientific community in using human induced pluripotent stem cell (hiPSC)-derived neural cells to study basic mechanisms of brain development, neuronal function, and drug-induced effects. In vitro-generated brain organoids are promising models, because they show a remarkable degree of maturation and can be kept in…
