Alex Sim, President of AMSBIO commented “Organoid culture is an exciting technology that is becoming increasingly important for drug screening and regenerative medicine applications. We are very proud to sponsor the event that will allow the participants to benefit from excellent instruction and hands on use of our products in this cutting-edge area”.

AMSBIO offers a wide range of matrices and other solutions for 3D cell culture including natural hydrogels, recombinant matrices, artificial scaffolds and scaffold-free systems. Matrices from AMSBIO not only support cells and cell layers, but also play an essential role in tissue organization that affects cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, and differentiation. These aspects can be studied with tools from AMSBIO and the company’s experience in developing specialist matrices includes regulatory-friendly solutions for regenerative medicine applications where customers are already in clinical trials.

The latest edition of AMSBIO's popular Organoid Handbook is available online and in hard copy for training course attendees. The extended 32-page handbook includes detailed information on organoid products, recently published protocols, peer-reviewed paper citations from leading international research laboratories and example results from a wide range of organs including brain, retina and the reproductive system as well as liver, gastrointestinal, breast and pancreas organoids.
