Cell culturing method, particulate culture carrier, and particle-encompassing cell aggregate


Provided is a culturing method capable of causing a three-dimensional aggregate in which cell function is similar to in vivo function to adhere to a culturing vessel while improving permeability of nutrients, oxygen, drugs and reagents from the culture medium and maintaining cell function. By sowing isolated cells in a culturing vessel, and after the cells have settled on the culturing surface, administering microscaffold particles that are cell-adhesive and substance-permeable onto the cells, it is possible to cause the cells to adhere to the culturing vessel while forming cell aggregates that encompass the particles.
