Traditional 2D cultures don’t really represent how cells function in the body. When cells are grown flat, in monolayers, on plastic, they lack the cellular context they would normally get in vivo. And yet it’s not always desirable or feasible to switch to using animal models. What’s the solution? Many researchers have switched to using 3D cell culture models to create a more realistic context in their cell culture models.
Want to know more about 3D spheroids and live-cell analysis?
This webinar describes, 3D cell culture methodologies and live-cell analysis solutions for investigating tumor spheroid proliferation and death; tumor spheroid metastatic potential; multi-cell type models and, organoid formation and growth within Matrigel domes.
Kalpana Barnes, will demonstrate the power of Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis for:
Manager, Cell Imaging Applications
Sartorius, United Kingdom
Kalpana is a highly experienced industrial pharmacologist with over 25 years of experience gained from pharmaceutical (GlaxoSmithKline), contract research and BioTech (BioFocus, Argenta, Essen BioScience) laboratories.
Trained initially as an in vitro pharmacologist, Kalpana specialised in designing and developing plate-based cellular assays to support automated High Throughput Screening, Compound Profiling and mechanism of action follow-up studies.
Within Sartorius, she’s applied her extensive experience to the development and validation of cellular assays for quantitative live-cell analysis and currently leads an R&D team focused on the development of advanced cellular models for oncology.
