For more than 30 years, MatTek has been the world leader of reliable in vitro human tissue model innovation. Our skin, ocular, oral, respiratory, and intestinal tissue models are used to assess safety and efficacy throughout the cosmetics, chemical, pharmaceutical, and household product industries. These advanced tissue models empower companies to achieve their goals of non-animal testing while lowering testing costs and providing human-relevant results.
MatTek’s expansion from a tissue engineering company to a full life science company was actualized with the addition of MatTek Dishes, Primary Human Cells & Media, 3Diy Kits, and testing services for clients seeking in vitro solutions. Industry-leading MatTek Dishes provide brilliant imaging in standard size cell culture dishes and plates. MatTek's expertise in cell isolation and expansion allowed us to develop the highest quality primary human cells and culture media for research in 2D. Our 3Diy kits further bridge the gap between 2D cell culture and ready-to-use 3D tissues by providing researchers with an opportunity to use specialized cells in 3D tissue models at a lower cost.
MatTek culture ware products combine the convenience of standard size plastic petri dishes and multi well plates with the optical quality of glass, providing superior microscopic imaging quality. All MatTek dishes are sterilized with gamma-irradiation and 5 years shelf life at room temperature.
