While monolayer cell culture has been used extensively to study many types of cancers in vitro, 3 dimensional (3D) cultures of cancer spheroids better simulate the in vivo environment and, therefore lead to a better understanding of tumor biology. Here we introduce a new cell culture surface, Thermo ScientificTM NunclonTM Sphera, that supports the in vitro formation of cancer spheroids consistently. The Nunclon Sphera surface coating inhibits cell attachment to the culture dish by blocking the… Expand
