Exhibitor Spotlight Tutorial:

Demonstration of a High Throughput, Image-Based 2D and 3D Natural Killer Cell Mediated Cytotoxicity Assays 

Tuesday, April 4
4:00 - 5:00 PM
Exhibitor Spotlight Theater B


In this tutorial we will describe a novel 3D NK cell mediated cytotoxicity assay. Target cancer cells were embedded within a collagen hydrogel and propagated to create tumoroids. Cancer and NK cells were labeled with individual tracking dyes, followed by NK cell addition. Fluorescent apoptosis and necrosis probes were also added to track cytotoxic events within the tumoroids. Kinetic cellular imaging and analysis was performed to monitor NK cell:tumoroid binding and induced target cell apoptosis and necrosis. Experimental testing validated that the combined assay technique provides a sensitive, accurate, and repeatable in vitro method to determine the ability of NK cells to target and kill tumor cells.
