Corning Life Sciences to highlight advanced 3D cell culture technologies and tools at SLAS 2019

Corning Incorporated will showcase advanced 3D cell culture technologies and workflow solutions for spheroids, organoids, tissue models, and applications including those for high throughput screening (HTS) and ADME/toxicology at the upcoming Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference, held February 2-6 in Washington, D.C.

Topics will include how the use of physiologically relevant 3D cell cultures is facilitating discovery and validation of novel drug targets and accelerating clinical translation of drug candidate screening for safety and efficacy. Spokespeople will be available for tours and to share insights at booth #413.

The company will highlight expanded product offerings, including the unique 1536-well plate designed specifically for spheroid HTS, and other 3D applications in oncology, neuroscience, toxicity screening, and more at exhibit #413. Corning will be able to speak to these applications, the impact of 3D in R&D and drug discovery, as well as perspectives in disease modeling and high-throughput screening.

Corning and its customers will also have several presentations and posters during SLAS including:
