Overcoming Current Challenges with 3D Cell Culturing
Explore how the RAFTTM 3D Cell Culture System has been used to develop complex multilayer cell culture models with different cell types.
Presented by Springer Nature, Sponsored by Lonza
3D culture is transforming cell biology and tissue engineering applications. However such evolution in research is also coupled with new challenges. 3D culture methods still require solid expertise in handling and optimisation to build good in vitro models, especially multilayer complex models. In addition, utilising 3D cultures with standard cell analysis methods, which were originally developed to support 2D cultures, can be challenging.
In this webinar, we explain approaches of how to overcome these challenges. The RAFTTM 3D Culture System has been used to develop complex multilayer cell culture models with different cell types. In addition, protocols are available that explain how to apply standard 2D cell analysis techniques easily in RAFT 3D Cultures.
Dr. Julie T. Daniels will explain how her lab at the University College London has developed multilayer corneal models using these cultures and is using this 3D method to address the current gaps in limbal stem cell deficiency (LSCD) treatment. Her lab aspires to take their research to the next level into clinical applications.
Dr. Jenny Schroeder will summarise other recent advances in 3D cell culture - in particular the development of novel blood-brain-barrier and liver fibrosis models. She will also elaborate on how to apply standard cell analysis techniques such as fluorescence microscopic imaging and viability assays on RAFT 3D Cultures.

The RAFTTM System is a simple-to-use 3D cell culture system that enables the production of robust, reproducible 3D cultures in less than an hour. It creates cell cultures inside a high-density collagen scaffold that more closely mimics the natural environment of cells.
