3D cell culture Biochip – versatile for more physiological applications

By mimicking in-vivo environments, 3D cell culture models appear nowadays as the best in-vitro study model to work in an in-vivo like study model and to obtain more physiologically relevant data and proof of concept as close as possible to “a clinical context” (aka the “near-human” approach).

To accompany researchers along this way, there are several innovative cell culture devices (available in Europe through tebu-bio), and more specifically a modular microfluidic platform for 3D cell culture with the capability to monitor complex biological systems dynamics in response to tuned microenvironment: the 3D Cell culture chip (Aim Biotech)


An innovative structure for a broader range of applications

Composed of a central 3D cell culture compartment, flanked by 2 media channels available for classical 2D cell culture, this system allows:

  • 3D Cell culture Dax-1 chip - AIM BiotechCo-culture of different cell types (2D and 3D cell culture)
  • Perfect communication between each compartment
  • Better culture duration under normoxic or hypoxic conditions.
  • Easy application and control of interstitial flow, pressure and chemical gradient across the 3D matrix
  • Easy tracking of cell movement across the 3 channels by microscopy
  • Get more general information by downloading the DAX technology flyer

Thanks to its innovative structure, this 3D cell culture chip provides the researcher with a broad range of applications, close to physiological conditions such as:
