In the present work we demonstrate effective 3D growth of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) HepG2 cell spheroids in parallel in a multi-well microdevice actuated with high voltage ultrasound in a temperature-controlled system. We compare the spheroid formation during continuous ultrasound exposure for one week where we formed spheroids in 59% of the wells, with the spheroid formation without ultrasound actuation, where we obtained 0% spheroids. Furthermore, we present an application of the tumor spheroids for investigating natural killer (NK) cells behavior against solid tumors.
