Interpreting the physiological relevance of cell culture model systems is a challenging goal. Typical 2-dimensional (2D) static cell culture models are missing factors such as 3-dimensional (3D) tissue structures and fluid flow that cells are significant functional drivers of cell behavior in vivo. As a consequence, static 2D cell cultures are many times poor predictors of in vivo cell behavior and association of this cell behavior with disease, drug efficacy, and toxicity outcomes.
Developing 3D cell culture models that are fit-for-purpose requires consistent, time-tested building blocks. Lonza provides these key building blocks with our RAFTTM 3D Cell Culture which has been backed by years of research and development. Supported by dozens of peer-reviewed publications, these technologies are ready-to-use saving time and resources normally needed for internal engineering.
Combined with our large portfolio of primary cells and supporting media, Lonza has all you need to develop the right 3D cell culture system to advance your research.
