A number of research efforts in drug discovery are being directed towards the introduction of in vitro testing models that replicate the in vivo microenvironment and provide physiologically relevant insights. Cell culture monolayers or 2D cell cultures are known to harbor differences in morphology, growth rate, function, viability and the overall behavior, as compared to those in natural environment. However, it has been realized that 3D cell cultures facilitate cell interaction with the surrounding media in all the possible dimensions. Cells cultivated using 3D techniques provide an appropriate ecosystem for cells to grow and proliferate and, consequently generate more accurate results of the experiments conducted on them.

The 3D cell culture industry is currently characterized by presence of several scaffold-based and scaffold-free products and services, widely being used for the purpose of research across a variety of application areas. Examples of scaffold-based 3D culture products include solid scaffolds, hydrogels, ECM-coated plates and microcarriers. Products, such as hanging drop plates, ultra-low attachment surfaces, micropatterned plates and suspension culture systems (such as 3D bioreactors), are some of the important scaffold-free 3D technologies that are currently available.

It is worth highlighting that despite the advantages that they offer, the adoption of 3D cell cultures is hindered by certain challenges. These cell culture systems are currently limited to small scale production of cells, thereby, restricting their use to research applications only. Moreover, 3D culture techniques still need to be optimized in order to ensure consistency of results generated across different scales of operation. Due to the aforementioned challenges, 2D cultures continue to be preferred over 3D culture systems; however, with increasing awareness of the advantages of 3D cultures, a significant proportion of researchers are anticipated to gradually transition towards 3D culture systems.

It is well-known that, of the several drug / therapy candidates undergoing clinical evaluation, very few make it to advanced stages and an even lesser number receive regulatory approval. One of the key reasons for the failure of therapeutic candidates in clinical trials is the use of conventional 2D cell culture systems in early research studies. It is important to reiterate that these 2D systems are severely limited in a number of aspects. For instance, only 50% of the cell surface is exposed to the culture media; as a result, the actual responses of cells to specific modulators / stimulants cannot be accurately understood. It is also worth noting that attrition rates of close to 95% have been reported for anti-cancer drug candidates as a result of inaccurate in vitro drug efficacy results and unforeseen toxicity issues that were not properly assessed due to the limitation of 2D culture models. The use of advanced 3D cell culture techniques in in-vitro studies is seen to have the capability to overcome several such challenges, currently associated with 2D systems.

The ‘3D Cell Cultures: Products, Technologies and Key Application Areas (2nd Edition), 2017-2030’ report features an extensive study on the various scaffold-based and scaffold-free 3D culture systems. We identified over 80 hydrogel / ECM based products, 70 inserts / plates / other cultureware and 50 3D bioreactors that are widely being used for a variety of research applications across the globe. In addition, several kits, assays and tools are also available to carry out cytotoxicity assessments, transfections and cell viability testing.
