Organoids are in-vitro derived 3D cell aggregates derived from primary tissue or stem cells that are capable of self-renewal, self-organization and exhibit organ functionality. Organoids address the limitations of existing 2D model systems by providing:
• Similar composition and architecture to primary tissue: Organoids harbor small population of self-renewing stem cells (such as intestinal crypt stem cells) that can differentiate into cells of all major cell lineages, with similar frequency as in physiological conditions.
• Relevant models of in-vivo conditions: Organoids are more biologically relevant to any model system and are amenable to manipulate niche components and gene expression.
• Stable system for extended cultivation: Organoids can be cryopreserved as biobanks and expanded indefinitely by leveraging self-renewal and the differentiation capability of the stem cell populations.
The 3dGRO Organoid Dissociation Reagent is a proprietary chemically defined enzyme-free dissociation solution used to passage multiple organoid cell types (etc. mouse intestinal organoids, human colon and lung organoids). Due to its chemically defined nature, the reagent produces consistent organoid passaging results. 3dGRO Organoid Dissociation Reagent can be used in combination with the 3dGRO R-Spondin-1 Conditioned Media Supplement (SCM104) to isolate and passage primary intestinal organoids from mice or in combination with the 3dGRO Human iPSC Derived Colon Organoid Expansion Medium (SCM304) to expand human iPSC derived colon organoids (SCC300).
