INTEGRA Biosciences

Integra Biosciences and InSphero AG, a pioneering developer of advanced 3-dimensional microtissue models, have announced today that they will cooperate on providing high performance liquid-handling solutions for 3D cell culture.

Ernst Freydl, Director of Marketing at INTEGRA Biosciences commented 'Initial customer feedback on systems integrating our Viaflo electronic pipettors with Insphero's unique hanging drop cell culture system to provide fast and economic 3D microtissue cultivation has been extremely positive'. He added 'INTEGRA knowledge of the cell culture market, expertise in liquid handling and global reach perfectly compliment the innovative flow of 3D cell culture solutions being developed by Insphero - our cooperation offers considerable future scope'.

INTEGRA is a leading provider of high-quality laboratory tools for liquid handling, media preparation, sterilization and cell cultivation. The company committed to creating innovative solutions which fulfill the needs of our customers in research, diagnostics and quality control within the life science markets and medical industry. The INTEGRA group, comprising INTEGRA Biosciences AG, Zizers, Switzerland and the INTEGRA Biosciences Corp., Hudson, NH, maintains a worldwide network of over 90 independent highly trained distribution partners.

Founded in 2009, Insphero develops and produces advanced 3-dimensional microtissue models that mimic the behavior and function of living organs much better than conventional cell cultures. InSphero is the maker of the hanging-drop cell-culture system GravityPLUS™, which allows reliable and automation-compatible scaffold-free 3D cell culture in hanging drops in a 96-well format. This gentle and biomimetic culture technology allows the highly reproducible formation of 3D microtissues or spheroids without the use of bioartifical materials such as hydrogels or rigid supports.
