3D Cell Culture Technology - Mimicking In Vivo Performance
Introducing the innovative and novel CelVivo System for 3D cell culture to bring you unlimited tissue models.
The CelVivo system creates an environment which promotes the growth and maintenance of large 3D tissue mimetic structures, whether they are spheroids, organoids and other aggregates. The technology CelVivo has developed to grow cells so they retain or recover their in vivo physiological attributes.
CelVivo’s ambition is to provide cells with conditions which allow them to develop functionality which closely mimics that seen in the intact organism.
To achieve this, they have developed a system which obviates the need for scaffolds, gels or any type of additives which might perturb gene expression away from its natural baseline equilibrium. Furthermore they have very significantly reduced contact with plastics and reduced shear forces. It is possible to use the culture media that you normally use for cell culture. CelVivo suggests reducing glucose levels to 1 g/L glucosw, which is more relative to those seen in healthy animals.
The ClinoStar is a clinostat for 3D cell culture incorporated in a CO₂ incubator . Allowing you to culture cells in 3D in a single unit.
A tablet is used to control the temperature, CO₂ level and each of the 6 clinostat motors are (independently) controlled using an intuitive software. The CO₂ and temperature in the chamber is blended by a centrally located fan to ensure a precise, homogeneous growth environment.
The technology created by CelVivo allows generation of uniform, reproducible and functional spheroids and organoids. These spheroids mimic the function, structure and architecture of in vivo cells. Our technology isn’t merely “3D cell culture”, it lets customers perform research using cell models with an unprecedented correlation between in vivo and in vitro conditions, and closes the gap between 2D cell culture and cell function.
In Vitro Technologies and CelVivo are proud to announce the outcomes of the CelVivo Grant Program.
We received a significant number of very high calibre applications from Australian researchers compared with several other countries. This showcases the high level of research excellence and innovative science in Australia.
Our sincere appreciation to all the applicants for time and effort you put into your submission. Due to the overwhelming number of application from Australia, CelVivo very generously awarded 2 winners.
Our hearty congratulations go to Dr Guillermo Gomez from Centre for Cancer Biology at in UniSA and Rachel Lam & Dr Alex Combes from the Development and Disease laboratory at Monash Biomedicine Discovery Institute.
The CelVivo Clinostar units will arrive in Australia for Guillermo and Alex’s labs in July and we will be sure to share some of our experiences with the installation of the Clinostar units in their labs. Watch this space, more exciting news to come!
