Human Extracellular Matrix Hydrogels and Cell Biology Modeling
Oct 07, 2021

The extracellular matrix (ECM) serves as an important biophysical scaffold for regulating cell growth and function. Traditionally, purified ECM proteins (collagen, laminin) are commonly used for 2D or monolayer cell culture applications.

3D Tumor Drug Screening Models for Oncology Research
May 24, 2021

For many decades, oncology research and drug screening programs have relied upon 2D or monolayer culture systems of established tumor cell lines. Unfortunately, these flat biology or homogenous tumor models do not represent the complex cell-cell and cell-matrix biology that are found in cancer patients.

Different Types of Stem Cells and Their Applications
Mar 15, 2021

One of the most promising advances in science has been the use of stem cells in research and the treatment of disease. In general, stem cells are cells that can be programmed to differentiate into many different types of cells. They also have the ability to “renew” or make copies of themselves.

Important Genotyping Information to Consider When Designing Experiments
Mar 12, 2021

Designing a thoughtful and well-planned experiment can be a challenge. The overall aim is to lessen the experimental process variability to maximize the detection of the biological variability. Analyzing biological variability is a stalwart focus of personalized medicine.
