Animal - InSphero

Custom 3D InSight™ Animal Liver Organoids are available only on request for research partners, who perform translational toxicology studies on a regular basis.

We offer fully tested and highly standardized animal (monkey, dog, and rat) liver toxicology models produced using species-specific primary hepatocytes and non-parenchymal liver cells.

Ideal for studying species-specific effects of liver function and toxicity these custom animal liver toxicology models can be delivered assay-ready to your lab, or used in tailored in vitro toxicology services.

  • De-risk and improve the success rate of your animal studies by pre-testing in a species-specific 3D in vitro model that reflects in vivo biology
  • Perform chronic toxicity testing with long-term treatments in selected animal models with a culture lifetime that exceeds that of conventional 2D cell culture
  • Gain physiological relevance with an in vitro model exhibiting polarization of hepatocytes, formation of bile canaliculi, and functional cytochrome P450 activity

Animal-derived Liver Microtissues


3D InSight™ Monkey Liver Microtissues are produced from primary cynomolgus hepatocytes and are available as monoculture or in co-culture with human Kupffer cells. This custom animal model is suitable for short- and long-term translational studies.


InSphero 3D InSight™ Dog Liver Microtissues are produced using primary beagle hepatocytes and are available as a monoculture or in co-culture with beagle Kupffer cells. This is an early release animal model, available to development partners only.


3D InSight™ Rat Liver Microtissues are produced using primary Sprague-Dawley hepatocytes and are available as a monoculture or in co-culture with Sprague-Dawley Kupffer cells. This custom animal model is suitable for short-term studies only.
