General description

Colorectal cancer accounts for roughly 10% of all cancer cases worldwide with more than half of all patients with CRC developing metastatic disease leading to death. Recently, tissue derived organoids have emerged as a more predictive 3 dimensional cell culture model of disease. 3D organoid cultures conserve the original genetic and phenotypic characteristics of the primary tissue allowing for their application in many research fields included drug development, personalized medicine and potential therapeutics. In vitro cultured tumor organoids have also been shown to predict patient response to chemotherapeutics. PDOs derived from colorectal cancer (CRC organoids) have been used for cell modeling and to investigate the function of cancer related driver gene mutations including APC, TP53, KRAS, BRAF, PIK3CA etc.

3dGRO® Human CRC Organoids are offered in a ready-to-assay format intended to simplify the organoid cell culture workflow. A single vial of organoids is enough to directly thaw and seed into a 96-well plate without cell expansion for drug screening applications. The organoids are manufactured using Cellesce′s patented technology which enables the robust growth and expansion of patient-derived organoids (PDOs). Cellesce′s technology minimizes manual handling time to maximize reproducibility in order to position organoid cell models as a cost effective and accurate tool in early-stage drug discovery. The organoid biobank includes tumor derived colorectal cancer PDOs from a range of genetic backgrounds, driver gene mutations, tumor sites and cancer stages. These organoid cell lines have been well characterized and are all validated for response against a number of known CRC-targeting agents.
