May 22, 2012 -- 3D Biomatrix, which develops and sells tools for drug discovery research and testing that mimic the human cellular environment, has signed agreements for the distribution of Hanging Drop Plates with distributors that serve Canada, Mexico, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.

3D Biomatrix, a leader in the development of three-dimensional (3D) cell culture products, has signed distribution agreements with four life science research product distributors in North America and Asia to market and sell the company’s Perfecta3DTM Hanging Drop Plates. The Hanging Drop Plates are now available from TekniScience, Inc. in Canada, Control Técnico y Representaciones, S.A. de C.V. (CTR Scientific) in Mexico, Beijing Biocoen Biotechnology Co,LTD in China, and Ming-Mei Technology Co., LTD in China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. Contact information for the distributors can be found on 3D Biomatrix’s website.

The Hanging Drop Plates are designed to simplify and streamline spheroid formation, culture, and subsequent testing of the 3D cellular constructs. Spheroid cultures grown in Perfecta3DTM Hanging Drop Plates allow drug discovery researchers to easily mimic tissue metabolic and proliferative gradients, to capture complex cell-matrix and cell-cell interactions, and to monitor cell growth easily and regularly.

“We are happy to have distribution partners in these countries,” said 3D Biomatrix CEO Laura Schrader. “There is demand for our products in these regions, so these partnerships are essential to bringing our 3D cell culture technology to researchers around the world.”

Information about the Perfecta3D Hanging Drop Plates can be found on the 3D Biomatrix website.
