Lost in Translation: Success through Collaboration- Magnetic 3D Bioprinting, from Spheroids to Fingerprinting Cells in 3D Using a 2D Workflow

The growing push for 3D cell culture models is limited by technical challenges in handling, processing, and scalability to high-throughput applications. To meet these challenges, we use our platform, magnetic 3D bioprinting, in which cells are individually magnetized and assembled with magnetic forces. In magnetizing cells, not only do we make routine cell culture and experiments feasible and scalable, but we also gain fine spatial control in the formation of spheroids and more complex structures. This presentation will focus on recent developments using this platform, particularly in cancer biology and immunology. Specifically, we will present a method for phenotypic profiling of cell types within spheroids using real-time high-throughput imaging. This label-free method allows for multiplexing with other assay endpoints for high-content screening. Overall, we use magnetic 3D bioprinting to create functionally and structurally representative spheroids for high-throughput screening.
