3D CELL CULTURE

Shaking Up 3D Culture: Novel Systems Agitate Cells to Facilitate Cell-Based Screening

For life sciences discovery and technology professionals, working with 3D culture has numerous advantages, including emulation of the in vivo environment; high cell yields from less laboratory space; and a significant reduction in costs of labor and consumables. 

OPEN SOURCE INNOVATION

Adaptable, Accurate and Affordable: The Next Wave of BTLAs

Wouldn’t it be great to turn on the lights and discover right-sized, perfect throughput, custom-designed instruments in your own lab? The latest benchtop automation devices, using space-saving components and open source software, offer endless possibilities for small and mid-sized labs to increase throughput while decreasing costs.

3D PRINTING

Beyond the Hype and the Headlines: Open Source Platforms Put the Power of 3D Printing into Life Sciences

In the past, laboratories used a glass blower and an in-house machine shop to churn out customized parts needed for experiments. Then, 3D printers arrived with an on-demand supply of wares made of everything from plastics and metals to wax and living tissue. Now, open source platforms put the real power of 3D printing into the hands of life sciences discovery and technology professionals. A new JALA Special Collection reveals how easy it can be to incorporate this technology into your research.
