Third Dimension Grant Program

A unique opportunity for researchers in Europe to get hands-on experience with RASTRUM™ right in their own lab. The application period for this grant is now closed, but please contact us if interested in the platform.

The RASTRUM™ Platform

The RASTRUM™ Platform produces advanced 3D cell models automatically by encapsulating your cells in RASTRUM™ Matrix which recapitulates the cell microenvironment. The RASTRUM™ Platform uses cutting edge drop-on-demand 3D bioprinting technology to precisely and reproducibly create advanced 3D models without any of the hassle of manual 3D alternatives. RASTRUM™ Matrix are tunable in stiffness, protein and peptide contents, empower researchers to recreate their in vivo tissue microenvironment in ways not possible with conventional preclinical models. The automated, highly reproducible nature of these models allows scientists to reliably model complex biology, discover new therapeutic targets, and screen drug compounds.
