3D Cell Culture Models

Price on request

3D InSight™ Microtissues are gold-standard, pharma-validated, preclinical co-culture tissue models for efficacy and toxicology testing with unique uniformity, ease of use and biological functionality.

Microtissue types

3D InSight™ Microtissues are gold-standard, pharma-validated, preclinical co-culture tissue models for efficacy and toxicology testing with unique uniformity, ease of use and biological functionality.

Microtissue types

  • 3D InSight™ Human Liver Microtissues: Have been shown to achieve 2x higher sensitivity for DILI prediction compared to traditional 2D hepatocytes. These advanced 3D liver models, which combine multi-donor diversity with structural and functional robustness, are ideal for drug safety and efficacy testing as well as the study of healthy and diseased liver function.
  • 3D InSight™ Animal Liver Microtissues: Rat, dog and cynomolgus monkey microtissues available for translational toxicology and cross-species testing.
  • 3D InSight™ Human Islet Microtissues: Their outstanding uniformity makes them perfect for compound screening and mechanistic studies in diabetes research.

Advantages

  • Achieve the highest biological relevance in an in vitro co-culture of primary cells
  • Test long-term effects of drug exposure in an organotypic, functional tissue model
  • Highly reproducible and robust liquid handling in InSphero’s patented Akura™ 96 well plates protect microtissues from accidental aspiration
  • Complete turnkey solutions offer lower cost-of-ownership than in-house production
