November 2018 – Newsletter
After a month of October rich in networking events, November is following with the same momentum. Here are our news and activities for the upcoming month. In November our featured company is Cypre.
Company of the month
Cypre, Inc. has developed a simple 3D cell culture platform and tested protocols enabling scientists to assay complex tumor biology, including ex vivo (patient, PDX, mouse), tumor-stromal and tumor-immune coculture studies.


VersaGel® is our proprietary, biocompatible 3D matrix that has the benefits of a hydrogel with the functional relevance of an extracellular matrix (ECM). Its design allows for cellular adhesion (through integrin binding sites, e.g. RGD), tumor and immune cell invasion, and MMP-degradation, mimicking the multiple phases of tumor progression.  VersaGel-Immunology is optimized for immune cell infiltration assays and VersaGel-Oncology, used in solid tumor assays, comes in three formulations for different growth conditions of various tumor cell types – Soft, Standard, Stiff. VersaGel is amenable to various methods of analysis, including high content imaging, plate reading, and flow cytometry following a 30-minute matrix digestion.
Symphony® is our patented one-button instrument that solidifies VersaGel in microwell plates in 60 seconds. Symphony-24 and Symphony-96 are specifically designed for 24-well and 96-well plates respectively. Not much wider than a microtiter plate, the Symphony’s small footprint allows it to easily fit in your bio-safety cabinet further streamlining your workflow.
