|The BIOFLOAT™ surface is anti-adhesive which repels cells of all types preventing them from attaching to the surface of the plate. This, along with the round bottoms of the wells, results in cells growing into 3D spheroids. The BIOFLOAT™ surface enables rapid spheroid formation, between 8 and 24 hours, with very high circularity and reproducibility compared to other surfaces. The chemical composition of the BIOFLOAT™ surface is very strong which allows it to withstand multiple washing steps and/or mechanical action from pipetting. Additionally, the BIOFLOAT™ surface has proven to be very reliable, even when using difficult cells. In fact, many cell lines and some primary cells have already been successfully tested for spheroid formation on the BIOFLOAT™ surface. |
SARSTEDT’s new BIOFLOAT™ Ultra-Low Adherence surface is available as a 96-well, round bottom cell culture plate.
