3D Cell Culture

Reliability from well to well

Drug discovery and therapeutic researchers are rapidly adopting 3-D cell cultures for drug screening since they can provide a more physiologically relevant environment than two-dimensional cell cultures.  

The Biomek family of automated workstations provides the same amount of pipetting control and reproducibility whether you are working in a 2-D or 3-D cell culture environment. From cell maintenance, to screening and cell-based assays, the end user has the ability to control cell handling for scaffold or scaffold-free structure.
