InSphero has invented a technology to form living cells into three-dimensional microtissues. Because they are similar to native animal or human tissue in the body, they allow for better predicting the efficacy and potential toxic side effects of new drug candidates in the laboratory. Our technology helps to solve one of the most pressing problems in pharmaceutical industry: the lack of early predictability to select drug candidates to enter the expensive preclinical and clinical trial phases. Not only do our microtissues show surpassing organotypic functionality, they are also the only 3D cell model on the market that can easily be used in automated liquid-handling and assay systems without major changes. Our unique cell-culture plate is compatible with standard micro-well plate formats and is pa-tent protected.
