Cellaria introduces new models to study pancreatic cancer

By The Science Advisory Board staff writers

October 15, 2020 -- Cellaria has launched three new cell lines for pancreatic cancer that it hopes will improve patient care by improving the value of in vitro methods of developing therapies.

The new cell models are called Stew, Chocolate, and Basket, and are linked to specific patient tumor samples and feature different constellations of patient factors such as gender, ethnicity, age, treatment history, and diagnosis. This diversity allows researchers to match their studies with particular patient cohorts, the company said.
