Application Note: Automation of the RAFT™ Collagen-Based 3D Cell Culture System
21 January 2013

Researchers are increasingly turning to 3D cell culture techniques for their studies, due to the improved physiological relevance of the cellular environment. TAP Biosystems has developed a novel 3D cell culture technique, RAFT (Real Architecture for 3D Tissue), which allows researchers to culture cell types of their choice in an in vivo like environment. In this poster it is shown that the Tecan EVO freedom can be used to reliably automate 3D cell culture preparation. RAFT 3D cell cultures maintain high cell viability, reproducibility and experimental versatility.
