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.

Design

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.

Print

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 - resuspend your cell pellet in, add to the RASTRUM Cartridge and press play.

03Automated cleaning

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

Use

Printed 3D cell models are compatible with standard culture and analysis.

01Incubate

immediately post-print and cultivate with manual or automated media changes.

02Interrogate

your 3D culture by standard imaging or assay techniques - the hydrogel matrix won’t interfere.

03Downstream analysis

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