Imaging Bile Canaliculi in 3D Liver Microtissues using the Opera Phenix High Content Screening System
Discover our new Application Note developed in conjunction with PerkinElmer: 3D high content screening assay to study hepatobiliary transporter function in human liver microtissues using the Opera Phenixâ„¢ High Content Screening System. Confocal imaging and automated image analysis were used to quantify BSEP and MRP-2-mediated efflux of fluorescent substrates into bile canaliculi.
Latest Publication Explores Combinatorial Treatments for Breast Cancer in 3D Tumor Spheroids
Radiation therapy is an important part of breast cancer treatment. Sometimes, however, tumor cells become increasingly resistant to radiation therapy. In this BMC Cancer article, scientists at Helmholtz Zentrum MÃ¼nchen have developed a 3D microtissue-based phenotypic screen which, for the first time, enables them to test which chemotherapeutic drugs can re-sensitize breast cancer cells to radiation.
