12 - 16.03.2017 - SOT 56th Annual Meeting and ToxExpo


Predict DILI with greater confidence

De-risk drug development with standardized 3D liver microtissues

3D Liver Microtissues for DILI Prediction
Visit InSphero at the 56th Annual Meeting of the Society of Toxicology to learn how our standardized 3D liver microtissues can help you predict drug-induced liver injury (DILI) with high sensitivity, without sacrificing specificity.  With PHH-derived liver microtissues in our new GravityTRAP™ 384 Microtissue Platform, and the launch of 3D Cynomolgus Monkey Liver Microtissues, you can now harness the full power of 3D liver spheroids from HTS to mechanistic and investigative tox studies. Hope to see you in Baltimore!   


What's New at SOT 2017

Sneak Peek:  Achieve higher throughput and greater relevance with 384-well Human Liver Microtissues

HTS DILI prediction meets 3D PHH GravityTRAP 384 Microtissue Platform for DILI Screening

What do HepG2, HepaRG, THLE, and iPSC-derived hepatocytes have in common?  They are all cell types researchers use to try to replicate fully differentiated, functional primary human hepatocytes (PHH), but these cells all fall short in one or more ways.  At ToxExpo 2017, we'll be previewing our new GravityTRAP™ 384 Microtissue Platform, which enables early-stage, short term DILI screening in a spheroid-optimized high-throughput format compatible with today's state-of-the-art liquid handling and high content imaging systems. You'll soon be able to harness the benefits of working in high throughput AND using a physiologically relevant PHH-derived DILI model.   


3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues

In vitro cyno: monkey microtissues for mechanistic & investigative tox

3D InSight Monkey Liver MicrotissuesNow you can translate and troubleshoot hepatotoxicity detected in in vivo cynomolgus monkey studies using an in vitro 3D monkey liver model.  At ToxExpo 2017, we'll be launching our new 3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues. This organotypic co-culture of primary cynomolgus hepatocytes retains the advanced, integrated biology required for species-specific studies in investigative toxicology.
