RASTRUM™ is built for 3D cell biology, accelerating drug discovery and biomedical research with the power of digital bioprinting.

RASTRUM™ Experience

A simple platform to create 3D cell models in standard well plates that are compatible with your existing experimental workflow.


Select from our library of proprietary RASTRUM™ Matrices and 3D Cell Models, without having to waste time with 3D modelling or hydrogel engineering.

01Choose a suitable matrix

from our library of validated matrices

02Pick the 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.

01Auto-generated protocol

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.

03Automated cleaning

and sterilisation pre and post-print means you can get back to work faster.


Printed 3D Cell Models are compatible with standard culture and downstream analysis workflows.


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.

03Cell extraction and analysis

is possible by harvesting matured cell constructs from the printed 3D Cell Model.
