Cardiac spheroids are 3D models of the human heart that are created by self-assembling or bioprinting cardiac cells. They offer several advantages over traditional 2D cardiac cultures, including physiological relevance, true tissue architecture, enhanced cellular communication and drug screening efficiency.
Primary adult human cardiac cells stand out as the most clinically relevant model for bioprinting cardiac spheroids because they better mimic the adult heart physiology, have patient specific immunotype (discover our HLA typed cells) and avoid the genetic instability of commercially available cell lines.
Bioprinted cardiac spheroids open new avenues for personalized medicine, regenerative medicine, and disease modeling with the potential to revolutionize cardiovascular research.
