July 2016 

Hi Karen,

Before you head off to the beach or pack your bag for your favorite weekend escape, take a minute to see what's new at InSphero! In this month's newsletter, we invite you to join us at an exciting new scientific symposium on translational applications of 3D cell culture technologies. You'll also find out about:
  • A new production alert service designed to help you plan for 3D microtissue experiments in advance
  • A technical protocol for running a GSIS assay with 3D InSight™ Human Islet Microtissues
  • Our cameo appearance on a recent episode of the Improbable Success documentary series.  
Have a great summer!  


Present your most recent microtissue data at the New Frontiers conference

InSphero has partnered with NCATS, CAAT, and Promega to launch a new international conference focused on translational applications of 3D model systems for drug discovery and development. This year’s scientific symposium features an influential group of speakers, including keynote speakers Dr. Michael Gottesman (NIH/NCI) and Dr. Thomas Hartung (Johns Hopkins/CAAT). 
Registration is now open and space is limited. Help shape the future of 3D models and contribute to the discussion by presenting your work and experiences. The deadline for podium abstract submissions is August 1, for poster presentations, August 15.   Submit abstracts and register online...


Stay on schedule with “Production Alerts” 

You can now sign up to receive automated production alerts that notify you by email in advance of upcoming order deadlines and shipment dates for our 3D InSight™ Rat Liver or Human Islet Microtissues. All you have to do is update your subscription profile to indicate which model you're interested in, and we'll make sure you know when to place your next order! 


Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) protocol for Human Islet Microtissues

If you're using our islet microtissues for diabetes and obesity research, take a look at our technical protocol for performing a GSIS assay to assess pancreatic β cell function using 3D InSight™ Islet Microtissues and commercially available ELISA kits, such as the ALPCO STELLUX® Chemi Human Insulin ELISA. Read more…


What do 3D Microtissues, electric cars, and custom fitted pants have in common?

The documentary series Improbable Success recently focused on Switzerland and featured interviews with biomedical technology pioneers at ETH Zurich and InSphero. Catch it online and hear InSphero CEO Jan Lichtenberg talk about what makes our 3D cell culture technology game-changing for drug discovery and safety testing. You'll also learn more about some other cool and innovative Swiss companies. Watch the show…
