3DProSeed® Hydrogel Plate
The tool you need for 3D cell- based assays
Our 3DProSeed® microtiter plate combines the advantages of hydrogel-based cultures with the
simplicity and workflow integration of standard polystyrene cultureware.
Our plate contains pre-assembled synthetic hydrogels, delivered to you hydrated, ready for cell seeding.
Hydrogel-based cultures have never been so
simple to establish.
Human neuronal progenitor cells & astrocytes

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.
