Seamless Science for 3D Cell Models

The journey to discovering novel targets starts with building a deep understanding of the underlying biology. To achieve this, researchers are increasingly looking to 3D cell cultures, microtissues, and organoids to bridge the gap between 2D cell cultures and in vivo animal models. 3D models provide more physiologically relevant conditions than biochemical assays and 2D cell cultures, as they more closely mimic the microenvironment, cell-to-cell interactions, and biological processes that occur in vivo. Plus, they show a higher degree of morphological and functional differentiation.

PerkinElmer takes a solutions-based approach to support customers at every step of the cell culture workflow, from seeding and sample processing to readout and analysis. With our best-in-class instruments, reagents, and informatics-based solutions you can grow, detect, and analyze 3D cell cultures at scale and begin generating more physiologically relevant data to better understand biological processes and make informed decisions.

cell workflow infographic


The first critical step in your 3D cell culture workflow is seeding, using specific methods and growth conditions. Methods are selected depending on the biological question, complexity of the model, and readout technology. Starting with the right cell model, that first needs to be characterized, cells can be grown as single spheroids in an ultra-low attachement (ULA) plate or cultured in hydrogels. Both methods are scalable using liquid handling.


Choosing the right microplate is a critical, often overlooked, part of an assay. The right microplate helps provides valuable data, whereas the wrong microplate can lead to missed or inaccurate data leading to missed project timelines and ultimately higher costs.

Sample Processing

3D cell models usually need to grow for days, or even weeks, before they are ready for read-out. Monitoring that growth and proliferation over this long period of time is critical to preserving your samples so they can progress to imaging readout. Our live-cell imaging systems help to significantly reduce the time and effort needed to quantify key aspects including size, number, growth, or shape. Plus, with our line of innovative reagents, you’ll have the right solutions available to prepare your 3D sample for any readout ― imaging, detection and sequencing.
