Application Note: 3D analysis of co-culture cancer spheroids
29 January 2020
In this case study, confocal images of co-culture spheroids are quantitatively analyzed using NoviSight™ software to evaluate their cell population and determine drug sensitivity in each cell. Assessing the performance of a drug using three-dimensional cancer spheroids is important because the spheroids reflect the complicated in vitro microenvironment of the cancer. This enables researchers to evaluate a drug’s effectiveness under parameters that more closely resemble a tumor’s natural environment.
