Ectica Technologies has developed a superior hydrogel Plate, the 3DProSeed® Hydrogel Plate, that enables the establishment of a stromal environment starting from a fully synthetic hydrogel pre-casted in microtiter plate delivered to the user hydrated, ready for cell seeding. Stromal, tumour and immune cells can be added subsequently to establish 3D co-culture systems to address complex questions in cancer biology. Ectica Technologies supplies the 3DProSeed product directly to the customer, with possibility to customize it in terms of chemistry, format and branding. Patient-derived tumour cells with their associated stromal cells can be offered together with the product. Ectica Technologies can support the assay-development phase and subsequently transfer the technology to the customer for routine activities or directly supply the products for assay development.
