Our 3D InsertTM-PS Scaffolds are ideal for daily 3D cell culture applications. By
utilizing our 3D InsertTM-PS you can turn an ordinary 2D monolayer cell culture
into a novel 3 dimensional cell culture environment, which offers many
extraordinary benefits you may never have realized.
Pre-Sterilized and Ready to Use
Our 3D InsertTM-PS scaffolds are prepackaged into wells of tissue culture plates
and terminally sterilized using γ-radiation. Currently our PS Scaffolds are
available in prepackaged tissue culture plates ranging from 6-well to 96-well
The pores of the products are 100% open, making it easy for cells to be seeded
throughout the porous scaffolds and the nutrient and cell metabolic waste to be
exchanged. This feature makes the products especially useful in conducting
dynamic cultures where the medium can perfuse through the 100% open porous
Well Defined Pore Size and Porous Structure
3D Biotek’s precision microfabrication technology produces a well-defined pore
size and ensures the reproducibility of the porous structure from batch to
Easy Monitoring Cell Growth
3D InsertTM-PS scaffolds are made from polystyrene, the same material as the
traditional tissue culture plates. The combination of transparency of the
material and the porous structure design makes it possible to monitoring cell
growth under an inverted light microscope.
Mechanically Strong and Easy to Handle
3D InsertTM-PS scaffolds are mechanically strong. Therefore, they are easy to
handle and manipulate when needed.
Free of Animal Derived Material
Our PS Scaffolds are made from 100% synthetic polymer with consistent quality to
ensure experimental reproducibility when using different batches of 3D
Improved Cell Culture Efficiency
3D Biotek's products have increased surface areas as compared to 2D cell culture
plates. There, more cells can be cultured using the same size cell culture
Easy Separation of Cytokines and Growth Factors Secreted by Cultured Cells
Our 3D cell culture scaffolds will not absorb cytokines and growth factors.
Therefore, cytokines and growth factors, which are secreted by cultured cells
during 3D culture, can be easily separated or recovered from the culture medium
without going through any extra separation steps.
Compatible with Most 2D Cell Culture Protocols, Including Trypsin Digestion
Cells cultured in
non-degradable scaffolds can be assayed using most 2D cell culture assay
protocols. Cultured cells can be easily harvested using the same trypsin
digestion protocol as in the 2D cell culture.

3D Fluoroscence / Luminescence
Everyone knows that cells cultured on 2D plates are not an accurate representation of the 3D in vivo environment. 3D Biotek’s 3D InsertTM provides an in vivo-like 3D cell culture environment that enables you to perform more accurate cell-based in vitro assays. And now, we are making your experiments even easier by combining our novel 3D scaffolds with fluorescent/luminescent plates! This will allow you to perform fluorescent and luminescent assays, such as apoptosis and fluorescent ELISA on our 3D scaffolds without any additional steps! This unique feature is only available from 3D Biotek.
