New range of 3D cell culture kits

Sphere Fluidics and ClexBio have announced the launch of the biocompatible CYTRIX Microfluidic Hydrogel Kit, which combines ClexBio’s novel CYTRIX Hydrogel with Sphere Fluidics’ specially designed Pico-Gen double aqueous biochip.

This facilitates the plug-and-play generation of defined, reproducible and tailorable hydrogel microstructures for 3D cell culture, organoids, single-cell analysis, and many other applications. This allows researchers to study valuable cells over many weeks rather than days in defined microenvironments that mimic the natural extracellular matrix.

The CYTRIX Hydrogel overcomes the challenges of existing microfluidic hydrogel formation techniques, such as clogging, finicky temperature control or time-critical mixing procedures. It offers cytocompatibility and microfluidic-optimised gelation kinetics, providing researchers with a cell-friendly solution to reduce the effect of harmful temperatures, pH changes and use of UV-light required for existing hydrogel formation techniques.

Paired with the Sphere Fluidics Pico-Gen double aqueous biochip and microfluidics, the CYTRIX Hydrogel enables efficient encapsulation of mammalian cells, bacteria, and other microorganisms in a homogeneous and defined extracellular matrix that supports cell viability.

Further information about the CYTRIX Microfluidic Hydrogel Kit is available on the Sphere Fluidics website.
