Kugelmeiers contributes to and provides accessibility to regenerative medicine, believing it to be a potential for future medical therapies that everyone should have access to. We developed as a result of 18 years of research and dedication in the ﬁeld of transplant surgery, cell therapy and developmental biology, a technology and ecosystems allowing us to make an impact on islet, liver and many other cell therapies that rely on 3D spheroids that need a medical quality platform.
Our company was founded in 2015 as a spin-off from the University of Zurich in Switzerland.
We are happy to announce a partnership with CELLINK to bring to market Spheroid Kits, which package Kugelmeiers Sphericalplate 5D for forming highly standardized spheroids with CELLINK’s vast portfolio of bioinks. The Spheroid Kits will be distributed globally, except in Japan and Switzerland, through CELLINK’s existing marketing and distribution network.
Culturing cell spheroids is an important emerging field for cell biologists that can be used in scientific, diagnostic and therapeutic applications. When coupled with 3D bioprinting, the enhanced biological functionality and accuracy of spheroids can be used like “building blocks” for tissue engineering. Kugelmeiers and CELLINK are proud of this partnership that makes CELLINK Spheroid Kits available to help researchers optimize workflows for an automated solution to spheroid development.
CELLINK recognizes the paradigm shift toward 3D cellular models in medical research and is committed to providing scientists with better access to the necessary tools and supplies. As demonstrated in the literature, 3D models better mimic in vivo conditions, and CELLINK researchers have found that pairing CELLINK’s bioinks with Kugelmeiers’ Sphericalplate 5D results in improved cellular rearrangement and yields more physiologically relevant data about cellular behavior. A recent CELLINK white paper outlines the benefits of spheroids within the realm of 3D cell culture.
