Analysis of the spheroid size and calculation of the spheroid number were performed as described previously by Hu et al.
"The cortex spheroids grow to a state in which they express functional connectivity, allowing for modeling and understanding of mental illnesses.
Based on an improved, streamlined method for producing iPSCs, the team's cortex-like spheroids harbour healthier neurons supported by a more naturalistic network of supporting glial cells, resulting in more functional neural connections and circuitry.
For elongated objects, such as spheroids, the lower frequency bound of the domain where Fock formulas can be used shifts to kb > 100 and larger.
A growing body of evidence suggests that tumor cells that aggregated in 3D spheroids behave more closely to their in vivo counterparts than 2D cells (Smalley et al., 2006; Schmeichel and Bissell, 2003) making them more appropriate for screening for potential actives.
Location of conventionally floating spheroids can be controlled over time or after liquid exchanges.
