How Does the RAFT™ System Work?

The RAFT™ System creates cell cultures inside a high-density collagen scaffold that more closely mimics the natural environment of cells.                        

The RAFT™ Kit includes a collagen type I solution and biocompatible absorbers, which enables researchers to control both cell concentration and matrix density.
