    3D cell culture model for Brain

    Product Basics

    BIOMIMESYS® Brain is a Hyaluronic acid (HA) based scaffold 3D cell culture model. This groundbreaking 3D cell culture technology associates the behavior of a solid scaffold and of a hydrogel, which we call “Hydroscaffold”. The Hydroscaffold’s composition and mechanical properties can mimics the microenvironment of brain tissues. It is proven to provide better in vitro/in vivo correlation than 2D models.

    Technical Information

    Mimics the Microenvironment of Brain Tissue

    By mimicking the low stiffness of brain tissues, BIOMIMESYS® Brain allows to grow mini-brains (spheroids of brain cells) or neuronal networks in 3D.

    BIOMIMESYS® Microenvironment of Brain Tissue

    For a better in vitro/in vivo correlation

    By using a brain-specific ECM with BIOMIMESYS® Brain, Luhmes cells showed lower sensitivity to Parkinson’s disease inducers in BIOMIMESYS® compared to 2D culture.

    Ready to Use

    BIOMIMESYS® Oncology is EASY & READY TO USE. Upon receiving the vacuum sealed 96-well plate open it (under a hood) and add the cells directly on top of the matrix. Changing the culture medium is easy as well. To remove medium, simply draw the medium with a pipette between the matrix and the edge of the well. To refresh the medium, place fresh medium onto the surface of the matrix.
