Supplied as a lyophilized peptide powder of 100 mg, 250 mg and 500 mg. You just have to rehydrate the powder with water to achieve the pre-gel solution.
Gel stiffness can be choosen function of the water volume added to the powder.
Finally add the cell media of your choice to form the hydrogel: salts present in cell media encourages fibres to lock.
How does it work?
The Hydrogels can provide a wide range of application as their property are tunable :
- Stem cell differenciation
- 3D invasive assay
- Mechanosensing, and Durotaxis assay
3D cell culture in a hydrogel (sphere format).
By adding the pre-gel solution directly in the cell media, the cells are cultured in 3D spheres.
