We are using a scaffold-free method for culturing our cardiac spheroids and are having problems getting uniform size, which is leading to inconsistent information and uneven distribution of nutrients. Do you have any suggestions?

Scaffold-free products like Corning® spheroid microplates and Corning Elplasia® plates have specialized geometries that are designed to create uniform spheroids. The unique well geometry forces cells to evenly settle into the cavities to form consistent spheroids. Flat bottom scaffold-free products do not feature specialized well geometries, which typically results in many non-uniform 3D structures.
