The European patent office issued patent EP2812424 on 28th August 2019. The patented invention is a multi-well plate containing a scaffold layer which provides a porous three-dimensional network of polymer nanofibres suitable for growing cells in 3D and the process for fabricating the multi-well assay plate.
The Electrospinning Company manufactures the Mimetix® range of multi-well plates for 3D cell culture. Cells grown in 3D are more representative of cells in vivo than those grown on 2D tissue culture surfaces. Our manufacturing process and quality control procedures ensure consistent fibre diameter, pore size distribution and scaffold thickness for reliable, reproducible assays. Case studies on hepatocytes, cancer cells and neural stem cells are on our website.
