Hosted by the ORS Spine Section, this webinar will cover the use of different in vitro culture conditions for intervertebral disc cells and tissues. From monolayer cultures of isolated disc cells, to the 3D culture systems routinely used to re-differentiate IVD cells towards the in vivo phenotype. The use of co-culture systems to mimic the native cellular interactions within the disc will also be discussed. In addition, we will review tissue cultures from explants to whole organ culture, with discussion of the media requirements and the use of loading and loading systems to maintain disc phenotype and viability during prolonged culture. The advantages and disadvantages of the systems will also be included as well as some of their uses to date. is hosting its first ORS Webinar on Cell and Organ Based Culture Conditions of the Intervertebral Disc.
