CytoSurge™ PCL is a 3D fiber scaffold made of medical-grade Polycaprolactone (PCL). It is uniquely designed and fabricated for 3D cell culture (adherent) applications in 6-well plates. 


PCL is an FDA-accepted biocompatible, biodegradable, and bio-based synthetic polymer. For a detailed PCL material safety summary, please visit the following link at


CytoSurge™ Inserts are designed to conveniently handle scaffolds in and out of 6-well plates with cells for media change and various analyses (e.g., PrestoBlue™, Confocal Imaging, etc).


The inserts are packaged in a custom plate, as shown in the pictures. This plastic plate should not be used for cell culture work. Customers should transfer the inserts to their choice of a 6-well plate (e.g., non-treated plate, ultra-low attachment plate, etc.).
