Our Mission: We are dedicated to advancing innovative in vitro science and producing synergistic life science products and services to support your research every step of the way.

For more than 25 years, MatTek has been the world leader in 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 expanded to a full life science company 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. Our 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. We have unmatched expertise in the field of in vitro science and the knowledge to guide our clients to reliable results through our testing services. Trust your testing to the in vitro experts.
