Novel methodology combines 3D bioprinting and imaging of glioblastoma cells

Written by Sharon Salt, Senior Editor

A recent study in Science Advances has reported on the development of a novel methodology that utilizes 3D bioprinting and a specialized imaging technique to study glioblastoma cells. This approach could provide researchers with a more cost-effective model to better illustrate what occurs inside the human body. “We developed a new technology that allows us to go deeper than fluorescence microscopy. It allows us to see, first, if the cells are growing, and then, if they respond to the drug,” commented study author, Xavier Intes (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, NY, USA).
