Visikol presenting at Thermo Scientific HCS User Group Meeting

Visikol, a leader in vitro assays and drug discovery services will be presenting at the Thermo Scientific HCS User Group Meeting later this month. The presentations will be at the John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland, and Dr. Michael Johnson, Chief Executive Officer of Visikol, will giving one of the seven presentations.

Dr. Johnson’s presentation is titled "Complete characterization of 3D cell culture models through the application of tissue clearing” and he will present 1:00. The 45-minute presentation will discuss the generation of scaffold free 3D cell culture models and their characterization using whole mount 3D labeling, confocal imaging and automated analysis.
