TAP Biosystems is launching a new RAFT Kit for the generation of 3D cell cultures in inserts. The kit is designed for generation of single or multiple 3D cell cultures using collagen, in a new format which expands the range of assays that can be run successfully with the RAFT technology. The expanded assay capabilities include the ability to create co-cultures, barrier models, and air-lifted cultures. These cultures can be used for transport, chemotaxis and invasion assays across a wide range of therapeutic areas and deliver a realistic collagen environment for the cells to increase the physiological relevance of the assays. The new RAFT cell culture insert Kit contains 48 individually packaged RAFT absorbers, which can be used with ThinCert (Greiner Bio-One) or Millicell (Millipore) 24-well cell culture inserts, together with RAFT reagents and the TAP Biosystems plate heater.
