Lonza will demonstrate the RAFT™ 3D Culture System at AACR 2016 and highlight new applications and optimized protocols that allow researchers to overcome some of the challenges previously associated with working with 3D cultures.
RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System uses a high-density collagen scaffold to closely mimic the extracellular matrix of native tissues. Cancer cells can be embedded in the collagen matrix, and many of them form tumor-like structures.
Delegates visiting the Lonza booth #1930 can discover:
In addition, Lonza will present a poster in the tumor biology category titled “Analyzing Cell Viability in 3D Tissue Models with the ViaLight™ Plus BioAssay” on Sunday, 17 April 2016, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, at the Convention Center, Halls G-J, Poster Section 28.
A further poster featuring the RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System will be presented by Tarig Magdelin, Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Cancer Nanotechnology Group, University College London. “Engineering a Vascularized 3D "In Vitro" Model of Cancer Progression” will be presented on Tuesday, 19 April 2016, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at Poster Section 10.
More information about these new applications of RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System for cancer research will be available at Lonza’s booth #1930 at AACR 2016.
