Likarda’s Microplate Supercharges Cell Cluster Production and Testing

Our proprietary cell culture system is more efficient and allows the cell clusters to be maintained for a longer period of time. Our 3D cluster technology can be incorporated within standard well plate formats to offer a solution that can integrate with industry standard automated equipment. This efficiency gives Likarda an advantage over its competitors by offering a truly scalable solution with vast applicability. Our microplates can also be combined with currently available assays.

The concept of miniaturized organ-like cell clusters is not new to science. However, Likarda’s patented microplates can produce and test more than 200,000 cell clusters in the same amount of space that competitors use to create a maximum of 384 clusters—that’s your time and money saved.

The benefits of using Likarda’s micromold include the following:

  • The ability to form clusters from different tissues and populations
    • Age-, sex-, species-, or breed-specific testing
  • A low diffusion barrier ensures total drug exposure
  • Uniform size
  • Averaged response
  • Improved prediction of native response by the body
  • Cryopreserved cells can be made into clusters for ease of use
  • Efficient scalability
