The confined internal space of a liquid marble, as well as its porous and non-adhesive shell, offers an attractive application possibility - accommodating living cells inside liquid marbles. Cancer cells in suspension may aggregate to form three dimensional structures, also known as cancer cell spheroids (CCS). In this study, CCS formation inside liquid marble is investigated. This liquid marble application opens significant and novel avenues for biomedical applications and cancer research.
