Recapitulate the Extracellular Matrix in a Dish with NanoSurface Biomimetic Technology

NanoSurface Cultureware provides your cells and tissues a biomimetic surface to improve the physiological relevance of your experiments. Shortly after plating, cells cultured on NanoSurface Cultureware exhibit enhanced structural and phenotypic development when compared to cells grown on conventional dishes. NanoSurface topography promotes cytoskeletal reorganization and cellular alignment by mimicking the structure of the extracellular matrix. NanoSurface Cultureware is available in familiar standard formats, featuring glass-bottom wells for high-quality imaging.

NanoSurface Cultureware vs. Conventional Dish

NanoSurface Cultureware dishes have a nanopatterned culture surface. This promotes cell alignment, where cells grown and elongate in the direction of the nanopattern. For example, primary- and stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes show aligned myofibrils across the monolayer surface and exhibit uniform anisotropic contraction patterns with enhanced contractile force and conduction velocity. The nanopatterned surface provides a cellular microenvironment that mimics the aligned architecture of the native extracellular matrix – improving physiological relevance by promoting cellular structural and functional development-- while still being compatible with most transmitted and fluorescent light microscopy techniques, including inverted optical microscope immersion objectives.

Conventional dishes do not utilize biomimetic surface topography, which results in random orientation of cardiomyocytes, disorganized contraction patterns, and immature functional phenotypes on the culture surface. The inaccuracies exhibited not only lead to imprecise test results, but can result in added workload and cost...maybe we can say more here about why conventional dishes aren’t the best method to use.

NanoSurface Cultureware

On NanoSurface Cultureware, neurofilaments (red) align along the direction of the nanotopography while dendrites (MAP2 stain; green) do not.


Conventional Cultureware

On conventional cultureware, the orientation of neurofilaments (red) is random and less representative of in vivo models.
