Infrared imaging was applied to investigate a reconstituted basement membrane, known as Matrigel, in three-dimensional cell cultures. Matrigel, in the vicinity of the colonies, was examined for four breast cancer cell lines presenting different 3D colony morphologies. MCF-7 and T-47D present mass colonies, SKBR-3 grape-like colonies and MDA-MB-231 stellate… CONTINUE READING
