RAFT™ 96-Well Large Kit, 3D Reagents and 4 x 96-Well Clear Plates and Absorbers

Catalog #: 016-1R10
RAFTTM 96-Well Large Kit, 3D Reagents and 4 x 96-Well Plate and Absorbers

Product Overview

The RAFTTM 3D Cell Culture System uses rat tail collagen type 1 along with patented absorber technology to create a realistic cellular environment to study cells' complex behavior. RAFTTM Kit is a simple-to-use 3D cell culture system that enables the production of robust, reproducible 3D cultures in less than an hour.

The RAFTTM 96-well kit consists of enough reagents for 384 microtissues including:  

RAFTTM Reagent Kit (Cat# 016-0R94) – consists of rat tail collagen 1 as the extracellular matrix scaffold and a specially-designed neutralizing solution that enables neutralization to be carried out in a single step instead of an error-prone and tedious titration method. The kit also contains 10X MEM to support cells through the microtissue formation process. 

RAFTTM Absorbers (Cat# 016-1R92) – The biocompatible absorbers are designed to work with standard 96-well cell culture plates. Once the cells are mixed with RAFTTM Reagents, the absorbers are utilized to compress and absorb excess liquid from the collagen mixture. This results in the creation of well-controlled, high-density collagen scaffolds embedded with cell type(s) of choice. The RAFTTM System is one of the few commercially available kits that allows users to create these high-density collagen scaffolds that are representative of a natural, more in vivo like environment for cells to grow and interact more efficiently.

Applications for RAFTTM 96-well kit include:

  • Cornea models
  • Liver microtissue models
  • Tumor microenvironment models
  • Organoids and tumoroids

A Three-Dimensional RAFT™ Co-Culture as Advanced Model for Breast Cancer Drug Discovery

Presented at AACR 2017, we demonstrate here the feasibility of co-culturing human mammary fibroblasts and human mammary epithelial cells in RAFT™ 3D Culture System as a 3D breast cancer model.

Construction of a Full Thickness Skin Model Using RAFTTM 3D Cell Culture System

In this Technical Note, we describe the procedure in constructing full thickness (FT) skin models using the RAFTTM 3D Culture System with primary Human Neonatal Epidermal Keratinocytes (NHEK) and primary Human Neonatal Dermal Fibroblasts (NHDF).
