3D Analysis of Co-Culture Cancer Spheroids



Standard Olympus Logo


Confocal images of co-culture spheroids were analyzed to evaluate their cell population and determine drug sensitivity in each cell

Assessing the performance of a drug using three-dimensional cancer spheroids is important because the spheroids reflect the complicated in vitro micro-environment of the cancer. This enables researchers to evaluate a drug’s effectiveness under parameters that more closely resemble a tumor’s natural environment.
