TAP Biosystems is introducing a 96-well version of its RAFT (Real Architecture for 3D Tissue) system for the generation of consistent multi-cellular 3D tissue models.
At the Society of Biomolecular Screening (SBS) Conference, TAP Biosystems' specialists will explain how the 96-well version of the RAFT System can produce realistic 3D tissue models using a range of cell types and cell-seeding densities, as well as co-cultured layers of different cell types.
They will also discuss why the transparent tissue models generated would be suitable for improving cell-based secondary screening applications using standard analytical techniques including light or confocal microscopy, fluorescence, histology and transcriptomic assays.
The RAFT System is based on a novel, patented process using collagen to mimic closely an in vivo environment.
The system combines workstation, consumables and reagents to allow multi-cellular 3D tissue models to be made rapidly and consistently in standard plate formats.
The RAFT System range now includes 12-, 24- and 96-well plates, and a 24-well system with permeable membrane inserts for barrier assays.
