Cultrex® 10X Spheroid Formation ECM and Plate

$245.00

The Cultrex® 10X Spheroid Formation ECM and Plate utilizes a specialized Spheroid Formation ECM to drive cell aggregation and/or spheroid formation of cells within a 3D Culture Qualified 96 well Spheroid Formation Plate. Upon completion of spheroid formation, the spheroid may be treated with pharmacological agents to evaluate tumor growth and morphology after drug treatment, and tumor spheroid expansion is visualized microscopically.

Available Size(s): 600 ul, 1 plate Catalog Number: 3500-096-SP Categories: ,

Description

The Cultrex® 10X Spheroid Formation ECM and Plate provide a powerful tool for modeling tumor growth in vitro. Tumor cell aggregates, or spheroids, are more representative of tumors in vivo, and they exhibit several physiological traits including similar morphology, formation of cell-cell bonds, decreased proliferation rates, increased cell survival, tumor dormancy, and a hypoxic core. Applying this model to a 3D culture cell assay provides a more physiological approach for objectively studying tumor growth.

The Cultrex® 10X Spheroid Formation ECM is a proprietary mixture of extracellular matrix proteins derived from murine EHS sarcoma and optimized for spheroid formation.  The diluted ECM is a fluid in culture that promotes cell-cell adhesion when cells are cultured in the Cultrex® 3D Culture Qualified 96 Well Spheroid Formation Plate.
