2015: A Year of Innovation and Growth at InSphero
The holidays are a time of reflection and celebration. We invite you to take a visual tour of some highlights from 2015 at InSphero, from patent approval for our GravityPLUSâ„¢ Hanging Drop System and the introduction of our GravityTRAPâ„¢ ULA Plate to new microtissues, toxicology screening services, and spheroid imaging technologies â€” all designed to help you get the most meaningful results from your investment in
3D model systems.
3D InSightâ„¢ Cross-species Hepatotoxicity Testing
Cross-species Hepatotoxicity Testingis a great way to prioritize your compounds of interest before investing in costly animal studies! This convenient service assesses hepatotoxicity (via ATP assay) over 7 days with repeat dosing in any three of our 3D InSightâ„¢ Human, Rat, Dog, Cynomolgus, or Minipig Microtissues. Standard packages for 5, 10, or 20 compounds available.
New Technical Protocol: LDH Assay for Assessing Microtissue Health
Did you know InSphero provides3D-optimized technical protocols to help you achieve the best results and collect clean, relevant experimental data when youâ€™re using our assay-ready microtissues? Our newest protocol assesses microtissue health by measuring LDH release as an endpoint for cell viability using the Promega CytoTox-ONEâ„¢ assay.
