#StressFree3D re-shared a post from I&L Biosystems GmbH. “From proliferative (2D) to functional (3D) stage. BioArray Matrix Drive unit enables the cultivation of spheroids in a 3D cell culture environment. The drive's control board fits into a standard CO2 incubator and has 16 independently control drive axles which can rotate in either direction at speeds from 1 to 60 rpm. The operation of the BioArray Matrix Drive unit is user-friendly by means of a tablet.

#StressFree3D system based toxicology

HepG2/C3A spheroids created using #StressFree3D system respond to drugs in much more physiological way compared to the same cells or even primary human hepatocytes grown in traditional 2D conditions.

Metformin, APAP, Amiodarone, Phenformin, Valproic acid

More details about this study here.


#StressFree3D spheroids are uniform in shape and size

and reach full functionality after 21 days. Spheroids can be maintained for up to one year, which allows for long term drug exposures and toxicity testing.

Watch them grow!

CelVivo CSO is Plenary Speaker at 12th World Congress on Pharmaceutical Sciences and Innovations in Pharma Industry CelVivo's CSO, Dr. Krzysztof Wrzesinski, delivered the plenary speech at the 12th World Congress on Pharmaceutical Sciences and Innovations in Pharma Industry, (February 26- 27, 2018 London). Attendees from over 70 companies and institutions heard speakers discuss newest approaches used for drug discovery and development, as well as strategies for creation of new drugs based on natural medicine compounds. Dr. Wrzesinski’s talk was entitled "Active 3D environment: a key to stable, reproducible, mimetic tissues". The talk presented advantages of using active 3D spheroid/organoid cultures for drug candidate screening.

Dr. Wrzesinski was honoured to be the judge of the conference young scientist poster session. The conference poster prize was awarded to PhD student Valeria Chiaula representing Danish Polymer Centre, Danish Technical University, Copenhagen, for her poster "Advanced wound care adhesives with new functional properties"- congratulation to Valeria.

CelVivo's BioArray Matrix drive achieves 'CE marking' status
The term CE marking on a product is a manufacturer's declaration that the product complies with all the essential requirements of the relevant European health, safety and environmental protection legislation ('European Standards' or 'Harmonization Documents').

"This is a milestone achievement for us" says CEO Dr. Stephen Fey. "This will allow us to distribute our equipment freely within the EU, EFTA and EEA countries. It is a strong signal that our BioArray Matrix is a reliable and powerful new instrument for the 3D cell culture laboratory, and brings an exciting future to us and our collaborators."

Completion of Innobooster Development Project
CelVivo has reported the successful, on time, completion of the Innobooster development project to the Danish Innovation Fund. The BioArray Matrix drive met all design specifications. The unit now logs all user entries and its own performance and makes this data available as documentation of operation performance (needed for example for Regulatory Authorities).

March 2017

Cell Guidance and Fitness
CelVivo's CSO, Dr. Krzysztof Wrzesinski, has been selected as a Danish representative for the managing committee of the COST Action “In vitro 3-D total cell guidance and fitness” (CellFit) CA16119. This is a European Union funded network aimed at developing tools to exploit environmental cues, mechano-transduction and 3D culture to stably maintain or address cells towards a specific fate. The goal of this network is to reduce the discrepancy between data obtained in vitro and in vivo by refining our present understanding of the cell environment, in order to create reliable in vitro models that may replace/reduce the use of animals.

The kick off meeting of the CellFit COST action was held in Brussels, Belgium on 16 March 2017. Dr. Wrzesinski was one of the 60 persons from 31 European countries represented.

Parliamentary Presentation
Antibiotic resistance is an increasing menace facing our society. This is not only true for a country like Denmark where pig farming is an important export, but also to countries where the population is at risk from tuberculosis or any country that relies on antibiotics.

CelVivo's CEO, Stephen J. Fey was co-organiser of the open symposium "New Possibilities for Treatment of Multiresistant Infections with Non-antibiotics” which was held in the historical "Fællessalen" at Christiansborg – the seat of the Danish Parliament. The meeting was hosted by Jane Heitmann (Health spokesperson for Venstre) and Flemming Møller (MP) and moderated by Peter Hyldgård (Journalist, Videnskab.dk). Dr. Fey gave the presentation "Breaking resistance development using molecules 'dancing' in Fibronacci patterns" and described the opportunity to test toxicity of non-antibiotics in human mimetic systems.
