3D InSight™ Testing Services

In vitro toxicology and drug discovery services in advanced 3D microtissue models

Early compound de-risking and drug discovery decisions require in vitro data with the highest possible biological relevance. 3D InSight™ Services utilize next-generation 3D models to answer the most pressing questions about the safety and effectiveness of your drug, helping you make pre-clinical decisions with greater confidence. Our experienced staff of 3D scientists can plan, conduct and interpret a tailored screening project using biologically relevant 3D models at a fraction of the cost of animal testing and human trials.  With our custom microtissue development service, we can also help you establish and validate a novel spheroid model system using your cell lines of interest.

Our 3D InSight™ Services feature:

  • Organotypic, standardized 3D microtissue models for liver, tumor, pancreatic islets, and other biological systems
  • Rapid turnaround to keep your project moving forward with results from more physiologically relevant models
  • Fully customizable experimental design to expand beyond standard testing results
  • Strict confidentiality between our 3D experts and your project team
  • Thorough consultation and reporting from proposal to project completion

Hepatotoxicity Testing

3D InSight™ Hepatotoxicity Testing

InSphero offers several convenient options for hepatotoxicity testing using our next-generation 3D InSight™ Liver Microtissues, which are developed using human or animal primary hepatocytes, co-cultured with non-parenchymal cells. Our standard services enable you to leverage the enhanced sensitivity and specificity of long-term (7-14 day) compound exposure, with protocols enabled by the improved longevity of primary hepatocytes when cultured in a scaffold-free 3D format.
