3D Cell Culturing – Fast and Simple!

Nano3D Biosciences (n3D) offers unique cell culturing solutions for the Life Sciences market. n3D’s breakthrough technology is easy to use, Basement Membrane Extract (BME)-free, and allows for the rapid growth of cells, all in an unmatched in vivo cell environment.

The Bio-Assembler™ is as simple as standard 2D techniques and faster than any other 3D cell culturing product on the market.

The Bio-Assembler™ System and BioAssay™

The Bio-Assembler system cultures cells in three-dimensions by magnetic levitation. The Bio-Assembler uses nanoparticle-based Nanoshuttle-PL solution to deliver magnetic nanoparticles to cells. Magnetic drives then levitate cells to create the 3D cell growth environment. Using the Bio-Assembler is as easy as performing standard monolayer (2D) culture. Preparation time and cell manipulation requirements are equivalent to 2D culture.

The BioAsay is a new 3D  migration assay that automates cytotoxicity testing using magnetic levitation technology. It can make a difference in your research through in situ data capturing, fast and accurate results, automated detection, ease of use, while giving you in vivo like results.

Why Magnetic Levitation?
  • Rapid formation of 3D structures and cell-cell interactions
  • More accurate representation of in vivo tissue
  • Compatibility with virtually any cell type including primary and stem cells
  • Compatibility with any media type, standard culturing protocols, and diagnostic techniques
  • 3D co-culturing capabilities
  • Unique capability for moving and shaping tissue, applicable to invasion studies and tissue engineering

As Simple as 2D

There are only two simple additional steps that differentiate the Bio-Assembler™ from 2D cell culturing:


1. Add the Nanoshuttle to cells prior to levitation


2. Place the magnetic drive on top of the cell culturing plate
