Simplify Your 3D Cell Culture with a Novel Method for Tissue Modeling

Video

This video shows the technology behind the RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System and how it creates high-density collagen scaffolds with cells embedded. The RAFT™ System has successfully been used in many research areas including toxicology, oncology, blood brain barrier models, corneal models and more. Coming along with easy-to-follow protocols, RAFT™ System allows you to set up robust 3D cultures in less than an hour. Learn more about RAFT™ System on www.lonza.com/raft-3d-culture.com.
