Disease models support our understanding of how disease develops and progresses, as well as potential treatment approaches. Disease models may be generated using more traditional 2D cultures or using more in vivo-like 3D cell culture models, such as organoids, spheroids, or tissue models to mimic disease in a more physiologically relevant environment.
Corning 3D cell culture solutions give you the power to generate and study more complex models that closely mimic in vivo behaviors in human tissues, tumors, and organs – including the lung, kidney, thyroid, liver, brain, intestine, prostate, and pancreas. Corning 3D cell culture solutions support disease modeling work being done in areas like cancer research, skin models, personalized medicine and infectious diseases.
Lung organoids generated using Corning Matrigel® Matrix and air-liquid interface (ALI) models generated with Transwell® and Falcon® permeable supports are being used to study a variety of diseases, including infectious diseases like COVID-19. Sophisticated 3D models help you understand how infectivity works, how it attacks the body, and how it spreads from one cell to the next. These advanced disease models move us closer to uncovering the best ways to understand, treat and prevent disease.
