Observing Spheroids and Organoids

Capturing clear images without fluorescence blurring

Spheroids are cellular aggregates that are becoming increasingly utilized at research sites due to how they resemble the natural state of cells in a live body. Spheroids are characterized by their wide range of applications, such as stacking them to make a larger body tissue or giving them activity like that of a miniature organ.

On the other hand, an organoid is an organ cultured in three dimensions that permits in-vitro observation of anatomy that cannot otherwise be observed.Organoids are spheroids evolved to more closely replicate the state of a living body. Both spheroids and organoids are contributing profoundly to the development of basic research.

Conventionally, a laser confocal microscope was commonly used to observe spheroids and organoids.
However, there were problems preventing ideal observation, such as: (1) observations taking too long, (2) operations being extremely complicated, and (3) cells suffering color fading.
