Simplifying 3d cell culture generation for high content screening with BIOMIMESYS® and the Viaflo 96-384 (with Integra Biosciences)

Growing interest in phenotypic screening, together with evidence that the drug response of cells grown in three-dimensional (3D) structures more closely resembles in vivo activity, has made high throughput, 3D fluorescence imaging an attractive screening option for drug discovery. However, creating 3D spheroids compatible with high content screening can be Read more…

Impact of neurodegenerative diseases on extracellular space organization and diffusion through hyaluronan remodeling

Soria et al. has published this year an interesting study about the modification leading by synucleopathy on the nanoscale organization and diffusivity of the extracellular space, through hyaluronan remodeling. Indeed the extracellular space (ECS), composed by the interstitial fluid and the extracellular matrix (ECM), plays several roles in health and Read more…

3D co-culture of dopaminergic neurons and astrocytes in BIOMIMESYS® Brain to study Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson’s disease affects more than 6 million people worldwide. This neurodegenerative disease is characterized by the death of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra pars compacta, with intracellular accumulation of alpha-synuclein aggregates known as Lewi bodies. This neuronal loss leads to a decrease in the neurotransmitter dopamine that cause mainly Read more…
