Custom Brain Spheroid

Overview Service Features Applications FAQs Scientific Resources Related Services

Introduction of Brain Spheroid

The brain spheroids, also known as 3-dimensional brain cultures or cerebral organoids, refer to spherical laboratory-grown human brain tissue with 4mm in diameter. Inside the brain spheroids, thousands of neurons communicate with each other with an electric pulse. As an impressive form of tissue culture, they can't generate emotions and thoughts. Since it is very difficult to connect a functioning circulatory system to the spheroids, it seems impossible in theory to make a larger and more developed sphere.

Brain Spheroid-Based Research

Recent studies showed that brain spheroids have been used for the study of oligodendrocytes and related diseases. Based on standard brain spheroid, some extra steps allow the generation of brain spheroids containing both neurons and oligodendrocytes. The custom spheroids can then be used for disorders research that impairs myelination and oligodendrocyte development. Firstly, the custom spheroids were treated with two FDA-approved drugs, then accelerated oligodendrocyte development and myelination can be observed. Next, the novel spheroids with genetic mutations in Pelizaeus-Merzbacher disease were generated. In this case, novel drugs can be discovered using these disease-mimicking brain spheroids.

Generation of Brain Spheroid

For different disease processes, Creative Biolabs can generate a variety of brain spheroids types for neurology and oncology research. The brain spheroid can be generated from stem cells derived from a sample of human hair or skin. Compared with 2-dimensional counterparts, 3-dimensional brain cultures are much more complex to better model the human brain in vitro. Equipped with a special sample holder and sensitive imaging detectors, 3D images of brain spheroids can be obtained without slicing them.
