3D cell culture models represent an attractive approach to decode intracellular and intercellular signaling, providing biologically relevant information and predictive data. Bioluminescent reporter gene assays and bioluminescence imaging in 3D cell models are very promising bioanalytical tools for several applications. Here we report a very straightforward method for bioluminescence imaging and bioluminescent reporter gene assays in 3D cell-culture models. Both the assays can be easily implemented in laboratories equipped with basic cell culture facilities and instrumentation for bioluminescence detection, that is, low-light detectors connected to inverted microscopes and luminometers, without the need for additional equipment.

Abstract

3D cell culture models represent an attractive approach to decode intracellular and intercellular signaling, providing biologically relevant information and predictive data. Bioluminescent reporter gene assays and bioluminescence imaging in 3D cell models are very promising bioanalytical tools for several applications. Here we report a very straightforward method for bioluminescence imaging and bioluminescent reporter gene assays in 3D cell-culture models. Both the assays can be easily implemented in laboratories equipped with basic cell culture facilities and instrumentation for bioluminescence detection, that is, low-light detectors connected to inverted microscopes and luminometers, without the need for additional equipment.
