Event Details

In this 2-day workshop you will learn about 3D cell culture and model development in microfluidic platforms, directly from experienced scientists from Molecular Devices and MIMETAS. The workshop involves both theory and practise and you will spend a full day in the lab to seed, image, and analyze your cultures. One expert trainer per 3 participants makes this an intensive learning experience. By attending this workshop, you will learn how to design and carry out Organ-on-a-Chip experiments using the OrganoPlate®, how to image and analyze your 3D cultures using ImageXpress High-Content Imaging Systems, and how to introduce the technology in your lab.


Hands-on laboratory training in:

- Handling of cells and extracellular matrix gels for microfluidic devices
- Establishing 3D cultures in the OrganoPlate® (in-gel and perfused tubules)
- Fixation, staining and high-content imaging of 3D cultures using ImageXpress
- Imaging Systems
- Assays and data analysis

In-depth lectures on the following topics:

- Introduction to Organ-on-a-Chip and the OrganoPlate®
- Key parameters for advanced cell culture models
- Assays and high-content imaging of 3D cultures
- OrganoPlate® platform and applications
