Moving from 2D to 3D

Webinar Outline

Cell culture assays with two-dimensional monolayers have been a well-established and convenient tool for investigating cell behavior and function in many areas of cell biology, such as cancer biology and stem cell research. However, these 2D assays come with certain limitations, since they do not accurately reflect the in vivo cell-to-cell interactions. Because of these limitations, 3D cell culture models have gained more and more relevance, as they have been proven to yield more accurate insights and data about cell function, structure, and morphology.

This webinar is an introduction to straightforward three-dimensional cell culture. We will discuss gel matrices and which labware is suitable for cell-based assays in 3D combined with live cell imaging. You will see experimental examples of 3D cell culture applications. Furthermore, the webinar will give you insights into the latest ibidi innovations, which facilitate the generation and long-term cultivation of spheroids and organoids in combination with high-resolution imaging.

Join our webinar, if you are interested in learning about these first steps into the world of three-dimensional cell culture.
