Challenges of Quantitative High Throughput Confocal Microscopy of 3D Spheroids

Tuesday, February 6
10:30 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: 6F

Multicellular 3D spheroids are providing far more biological complexity than standard 2D monolayer cell culture. There is growing excitement for the use of spheroids in phenotypic drug discovery and the development of more predictive models of toxicity. However, unlike thin 2D monolayers that are easily imaged, there are significant challenges to quantitative confocal imaging of spheroids. This talk will address these challenges as they pertain to quantitative high throughput confocal microscopy.
