InSphero coordinates EU project for next-generation drug screening device InSphero will co-develop "The-Body-on-a-Chip" device with inter-connected microtissue models for early stage compound de-risking. On board are AstraZeneca, ETH Zurich, Ifado Dortmund, and KU Leuven. Read more here.
3D cell culture literature picks – July 2012 Our applications team has reviewed a small selection of current 3D-cell-culture journal papers to keep you updated about recent developments in 3D.
InSphero is a leading supplier of organotypic, biological in-vitro 3D microtissues for highly predictive drug testing. The company, headquartered in Zurich, Switzerland, currently counts 6 of the top ten global pharmaceutical and cosmetics companies as customers, and is helping them implement the company’s patent-pending microtissue technology in their development work-flow. InSphero’s 3D microtissues are scaffold free, highly reproducible and delivered in an automation-compatible 96-well format to replace conventional 2D cell assays for better biological relevance and predictivity. The 3D cancer microtissues reflect tumor physiology and are used routinely for screening. For toxicology and metabolics applications, rat and human 3D liver microtissues predict even rare cases of idiosyncratic toxicology and remain viable for more than 5 weeks for chronic studies. InSphero’s off-the-shelf portfolio of assay-ready microtissues is complemented by custom-made 3D microtissues with a development time of 4-6 weeks and production turnaround of less than 10 days.
InSphero is a spin-off company of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich and the University Zurich. The company was recognized for its scientific and commercial achievements with a number of awards, including the VentureKick award, Heuberger Entrepreneurial Award, CTIstartup certification and the SLAS New Product Award (NPA) 2011 Designation. InSphero is also officially certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard for its Quality Management System.
