3D Cell Culture NanoCulture®Plate (NCP) System
The NanoCulture®Plate (NCP) system was developed by SCIVAX Corporation in Japan.
Using its nanotechnology, SCIVAX developed a very thin film with a micro structure, which is used as the bottom of the NCP. This micro pattern enables 3D cell growth without the use of 3D scaffolds or a gel-matrix.

Advantages of the NanoCulture®Plate

  • Uniform and reproducible spheroid formation
  • Spheroids are attached to the plate and medium change is possible
  • Easy handling using conventional 2D cell culture technique
  • The NCP system has great optical properties (comparable to glass) for high performance imaging
  • Spheroids on the NCP plate preserve differentiation characteristics
  • Animal-free product
  • Easy harvest of spheroids
  • Amenable for high throughput screening

  • Application

    The NCP system is ideal for 3D culturing of
  • Cancer cell lines
  • Primary tumors
  • Mesenchymal stem cells
  • Normal cells: adipocytes, osteoblast, hepatocytes
  • We are no longer distributing the NCP system. Please contact JSR Micro to place your order.
