Via a mixture of striking microscopy images and highly informative animations, the new video discusses the limitations of 2D cell culture and demonstrates how Reinnervate’s Alvetex®Scaffold enables cells growing in vitro to adopt their natural in vivo shape and structure. This allows the cells to form complex interactions and mimic more life-like tissue configurations, all of which cannot be easily or reliably achieved using traditional 2D models. Subsequently, tissue culture research using Alvetex®Scaffold produces more insightful results that are closer to those that might be obtained in vivo, while simultaneously reducing the need for animal testing.
