3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues

Primary cynomolgus hepatocyte-derived 3D monkey liver models delivering greater physiological relevance for investigative toxicology studies

3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissue models

3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues are standardized, functional 3D liver spheroids derived from primary cynomolgus hepatocytes. They are delivered assay-ready for studying species-specific effects of liver function and toxicity.

  • De-risk and improve the success rate of your animal studies by pre-testing in a species-specific in vitro model that reflects in vivo biology
  • Perform chronic toxicity testing with long-term treatments in a model with a culture lifetime of 28 days, 4x that of conventional 2D cell culture (7 days)
  • Use a physiologically relevant in vitro model exhibiting polarization of hepatocytes, formation of bile canaliculi, and functional cytochrome P450 activity

  •  monkey liver microtissue morphology

    Microtissue size and morphology is stable for more than 28 days when cultured in GravityTRAP™ plates with our specially formulated media. 

  • monkey liver organotypic modelOur organotypic 3D Monkey liver model. 3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues are composed of primary cynomolgus hepatocytes, and available in monoculture or in co-culture with human Kupffer cells. 

  • monkey liver microtissue viability

    Preserved viability. 3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues are viable for more than 28 days in culture, as demonstrated by stable ATP content (shown in pmol/microtissue), evaluated by CellTiter-Glo® ATP-assay (Promega).





  • monkey liver microtissue functionalityRobust functionality for more than 28 days in culture.  Albumin secretion was used as a measure of hepatocyte functionality (shown in μg/106 cells/day)

  • Stable morphology over time
  • 3D model reflects in vivo liver-specific morphology
  • Long-term viability enables long-term hepatotoxicity testing
  • Long-term functionality ensures reliable results over time
