Reinnervate's Alvetex Scaffold 96-well plates are designed from a polystyrene material that provides a robust and inert scaffold for cells to grow and form complex 3D structures in vitro, mimicking the normal growth and formation of tissues in the body.
The scaffold has been tested with a large number of cell types, including
liver, skin, cancer and stem cells, all of which have important applications
in basic research into cell development, disease modelling and drug safety
screening. The scaffold has been launched globally in several formats: a
12-well culture plate, 24-well culture plate, 96-well plate, and 6-well and
12-well inserts. These formats enable scientists to construct different 3D
cell culture models and assays. These include screening of novel drugs and
drug combinations on 3D culture and co-culture models, co-culture to study
cell-cell or cell-matrix interactions, the growth of cells at the air-liquid
interface and the long-term culture of cells.
