  • Introduction


    3D cell culture in in vivo-like matrices
    Live cell imaging in a 3D environment
    Creating a 3D scaffold for organoids and spheroids
    Chemotaxis assays in 3D collagen gels using the µ-Slide Chemotaxis
    Cell migration assays of suspension cells (e.g., leukocytes)
    Coating of cell culture vessels with a thin collagen layer to promote cell attachment
    Cell differentiation studies in a 2D versus 3D environment
    Highly suited for fluorescence microscopy due to low autofluorescence
