Background

VECELL® plates are unique tools which can be used for 3D Cell culturing. Compared to conventional 2D Cell Culture, 3D Cell Culturing is able to provide an in vivo-like environment that is closer to the actual cell conditions for cells to grow and proliferate.

VECELL®  Insert

 

VECELL®3D Cell Culture plates have membranes on the bottom of the wells with a porous structure. The membrane, referred to as the VECELL® Insert consists of ePTFE fibers modified with an amphiphilic polymer and collagen which enhances cell attachment and proliferation.

Fiber length 10-50 μm
Width Between the fibers   2-5 μm
Thickness of the membrane      50-70 μm
Porosity of membrane 90%

Compared to culturing on conventional plastic dishes where cells strech out due to insufficient oxygen supply, cells grow and proliferate in a more similar way to when they do in an in vivo environment.
