Organoid cultures

Microcavity arrays are especially suitable for the culture of organoids since the feature size recapitulates physiologic dimensions. Currently, we are establishing cardiomyocyte organoids cultures, so-called heart-forming organoids (HFOs) which can be functionally characterized by genetically encoded calcium inidcators (GECI).

Calcium transients in cardiomyocytes can be measured using genetically encoded calcium indicators (GECI).
