1. Day (22.9.2020)

3D Biology & Imaging

In this conference, we will present 


- The solution combines CELLINK’s 3D bioprinting instruments and bioinks with Lonza’s primary cells and culture media, to meet the needs of cell biologists for enhanced bioprinting of complex 3D human tissue constructs.

-Imaging and characterisations of the developed 3D cultures is also important. Automated imaging tools that BioTek can provide, gives valuable information for improving routine cell culturing techniques and increasing the effectiveness and reproducibility of downstream cell-based assays.
