RASTRUM™ is built for 3D cell biology, accelerating drug discovery and biomedical research with the power of digital bioprinting.
A simple platform to create 3D cell models in standard well plates that are compatible with your existing experimental workflow.
Enough flexibility to design your experiment, without having to waste time with 3D modelling or hydrogel engineering.
01Choose your model type
from a selection of proven 3D structures.
02Customise your 3D cell model
to suit your research question.
03Define a platemap
to suit your experimental workflow.
Incredibly easy and automated printing workflow to create your 3D cell model efficiently and reproducibly.
lets you execute with confidence, with no need to tweak printing parameters.
02Plug and play printing
allows you to resuspend your cell pellet in bioink, add it to the RASTRUM Cartridge and press play to print.
and sterilisation pre and post-print means you can get back to work faster.
Printed 3D cell models are compatible with standard culture and analysis.
immediately post-print and cultivate with manual or automated media changes.
your 3D culture by standard imaging or assay techniques - the hydrogel matrix won’t interfere.
is possible by harvesting matured cell constructs from the printed 3D model.
