The kit can be used for testing drug candidates for primary cancer cell, for toxicity studies or for iPS cell regeneration. The NanoCulture® plates of SCIVAX contain a multi-layer adhesive which has been subjected to micro honeycomb and micro square patterning by nanoimprint technology, mimicking the extracellular matrix to the bottom surface. On these surfaces, cells form spheroids actively.
