3DProSeed StromaLine NEW

Our focus on the tumor-stroma interactions

Our new 3DProSeed ® StromaLine ® is an attractive collection of pre-developed and well characterized stromal models ideal for tumor-stroma interaction studies.  The ability to build a synthetic model of the stromal microenvironment in a high-content screening-compatible manner enables new discoveries in oncology. Anti-cancer drug screenings can be conducted in the presence of the stromal compartment with minimal adaptation efforts.
