    3D cell culture model for Liver

    Product Basics

    BIOMIMESYS® Liver 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 Liver. It is proven to provide better in vitro/in vivo correlation and cell longevity than 2D models.

    BIOMIMESYS® Cell longevity and a proper phenotype

    BIOMIMESYS® Liver is dedicated to the culture of liver cells such as hepatocytes. Unlike in 2D culture, primary human hepatocytes in 3D within BIOMIMESYS® Liver had their enzymatic activities (e.g. CYPs) and albumin secretion maintained until 21 days.

    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.
