Cancer cell spheroids present a relevant in vitro model of avascular tumors for anti-cancer drug testing applications. A detailed protocol for producing both mono-culture and co-culture spheroids in a high throughput 96-well plate format is described in this work. This approach utilizes an aqueous two-phase system to confine cells into a drop of the denser(More)
ONO-4007 is a synthetic analogue of the lipid A moiety of bacterial lipopolysaccharide, which exhibits antitumor activity by the induction of intratumoral tumor necrosis factor alpha, the potentiation of tumor-infiltrating macrophages, and the inhibition of angiogenesis. Interleukin (IL)-1 alpha, IL-6, and IL-12 induction by ONO-4007 activates cytotoxic(More)
This paper presents a new 3D culture microtechnology for high throughput production of tumor spheroids and validates its utility for screening anti-cancer drugs. We use two immiscible polymeric aqueous solutions and microprint a submicroliter drop of the "patterning" phase containing cells into a bath of the "immersion" phase. Selecting proper formulations(More)
