A growing body of evidence suggests that 3D cell models yield more translational biological insight than 2D monolayers. Current turnkey screening assays for 3D cell health are mostly based on end-point biochemical readouts (e.g. ATP, LDH) and overlook valuable morphological and temporal information. Here we describe a simple, non-perturbing and kinetic live-cell imaging approach using new bright-field and fluorescent marker software tools to measure the growth and viability of 3D spheroids.
