RAFT 3D Cell Culture System

The novel RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System is designed to closely mimic the native environment of cells! The RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture kit offers a complete solution with the necessary reagents and consumables to develop RAFTTM 3D Cultures.   
The RAFT™ 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.


  • RAFT™ Reagent Kit – 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 RAFT™ process.   
  • Novel RAFT™ Absorbers – The biocompatible absorbers are designed to work with standard 96- or 24-well cell culture plates as well as 24-well cell culture inserts. Once the cells are mixed with RAFT™ 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 RAFT™ System is one of the few commercially available kits that allows users to create high-density collagen scaffolds that are representative of a natural, more in-vivo like environment for cells to grow and interact more efficiently.
