Applications of Corning® FluoroBlok™ Permeable Supports

In vitro cell migration and invasion assays are frequently used as model systems for studying the directed movement of cells towards a chemoattractant stimulus, or to determine how a particular drug, growth factor or extra cellular matrix coating affects that movement. The classic method used to analyze this movement, the Boyden chamber, can be time-consuming, labor-intensive, and subjective.
An improved version of this technology was developed, Corning FluoroBlok. As cells migrate or invade through a fluorescence blocking membrane, they are detected using a bottom-reading microplate reader or inverted fluorescence microscope. Cells remaining in the upper chamber of the insert are shielded from detection, allowing for quantitation of cell numbers in this homogeneous assay system.
Recommended uses of the FluoroBlok system as well as recent improvements will be reviewed in this seminar.

  • Corning® CellBIND: Reducing Serum Levels and Culture Costs (Vietnamese Version) Jun 30 2021 7:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Dzung Do Van
    A major cost component of cell culture is fetal bovine serum (FBS), an often essential and very expensive. Many researchers routinely use media containing 10 to 20% FBS for growing the cells, but these levels may be higher than cells require. By reducing FBS levels by 50%, researchers may be able to save a considerable amount of money. Not all cell lines will do well at lower FBS levels although many will. This short presentation will help you better understand the steps you can take to reduce your cultures’ FBS levels and save money while keeping your cultures happy.

  • Advancing Neurosphere Research with 3D Cell Culture Recorded: Feb 16 2021 49 mins
    Roxana Ghadessy, Ph.D.
    Neurosphere formation of human neural stem cells (hNSCs) is a widely used in vitro culture system to study neurogenesis, neural development, neurotoxicity, and neurodegenerative disease models. This system allows for three-dimensional (3D) expansion of hNSCs within a more physiologically relevant microenvironment. Having an easy-to-use, reproducible neurosphere culture and analysis method to understand hNSC dynamics greatly enables their use for drug discovery and cell therapy applications. In this webinar, learn how Corning® spheroid microplates provide an ideal tool to study neurosphere formation, proliferation, differentiation, migration, and neurotoxicity of hNSCs, in an easy-to-use format amenable to high throughput screening.

  • Neuroscience Applications with 3D Cell Culture Recorded: Feb 4 2021 45 mins
    Constanza Curotto
    Countless medical breakthroughs over the past century have begun with two-dimensional (2D) cell culture models. However, the limitations of 2D culture are immediately obvious – cells, tissues, and organs exist in three dimensions, not two, and tissues almost always consist of more than one cell type. By providing greater physiologic relevance, 3D cultures narrow the bridge between in vitro and live-animal or human assays. Recently, advances in the development of 3D brain cell culture models are recapitulating various aspects of the human brain physiology in vitro, used to replicate various disease processes. This webinar will cover the basics of 3D models applied to Neuroscience, including models for neurosphere and blood brain barrier generation.
