Alvetex® Strata 12 Well Insert

STP005-12 / STP005-48 / STP005-96

Brand: Alvetex

The Alvetex Strata 12 Well Insert enables long term 3D culture. Cells can receive media nutrients from above and below the membrane. Comprised of an Alvetex well insert containing Alvetex Strata (the insert is designed to hang in a well of a 6 well plate or a 12 well plate).

Product Information

  • Alvetex is a highly porous polystyrene scaffold designed for 3D cell culture
    Cells grown in Alvetex possess a natural tissue-like structure that enables them to function in a more physiologically relevant manner. Alvetex 3D cell culture enables cells maintain their in vivo morphology, behavior and responsiveness within an in vitro model system.
  • Alvetex is a unique cellular environment
    Manufactured to the highest standards of consistency each disc is engineered to a thickness of just 200 µm with pore sizes of 36-40 µm (Alvetex Scaffold). No cell is ever further than 100 µm from the nutrient source enabling easily exchange of nutrients, gases and waste products by passive diffusion across short distances.
  • Maintain natural cell shape and morphology
    In conventional 2D cell culture, cells come into contact with the flat surface of the culture vessel (e.g. Petri dish, flask or multi-well plate). In this unnatural environment cells become flattened against the substrate. In this abnormally thin structure there has been significant re-modelling of the internal cellular components. The entire cytoskeleton is remodeled and organelles such as the nucleus are flattened.
  • Alvetex has been designed for simple and routine use
    It uses conventional cell culture plasticware. Therefore any cell biologist can get into Alvetex 3D cell culture.
    • No specialist equipment is required
    • No changes to media and optimized cell feeding protocols
    • Compatible with the majority of down stream analytical techniques.

Say goodbye to risks of foreign unknown materials such as proteins or cytokines of animal origin — unlike conventional materials used in cell culture Alvetex is made from polystyrene and is completely inert.
