C o-culturing Bronchial Epithelial and Sm ooth M uscle Cells from Normal and Asthmatic Donors in RAFT™ System
With 2D methods, it is challenging to layer multiple cell types to achieve the complexity of an airway model. In order to better understand cellular interactions, we developed a preliminary co-culture system with Lonza's
bronchial epithelial and smooth muscle cells from normal and asthmatic donors using the RAFT™ 3D Cell Culture System.
RAFT™ System has been used to successfully generate 3D models in a number of research areas and applications:
Cancer research – tumor formation
Neurobiology – blood brain barriers
Ocular research – corneal models
Airway research – lung models

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.
