This question is part of the following Ask The Expert session:
Assuming you are looking to culture a cancer organoid in the apical chamber of Corning® FluoroBlok™ Cell Culture Inserts and measure immune function, then the answer is most likely. Although it does not appear much published work has been done in this area, FluoroBlok inserts are a great choice when one is looking to exclude fluorescent signal generated by cells on the apical surface of the membrane. Even though they are typically used for migration and invasion assays, they may find some use here. It is also possible to combine Corning 96HTS inserts with the Corning spheroid microplate in order to look at immune cell migration/invasion towards the cancer organoid. Corning scientists have done a similar assay with NK92 cells and a lung cancer cell line.
