VitroGel MMP High Concentration
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) sensitive biodegradable hydrogel – tunable, xeno-free hydrogel, high concentration (3 mL kit).
VitroGel MMP High Concentration is a tunable, xeno-free (animal origin-free) hydrogel system modified with matrix metalloproteinase-sensitive peptides. The enzyme-sensitive hydrogel can be degraded by several MMPs (MMP1, MMP2, MMP3, MMP9, and MMP13) and support different biological activities such as cell proliferation, migration (adhesion/dispersion), differentiation, angiogenesis, apoptosis, etc. VitroGel MMP High Concentration comes with VitroGel Dilution Solution to adjust the final hydrogel strength from 10 to 4000 Pa.
VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels are xeno-free, tunable hydrogels for researchers wanting full control to manipulate the biophysical and biological properties of the cell culture environment. The tunability of the hydrogel gives the ability to create an optimized environment for cell growth. The hydrogel system has a neutral pH, transparent, permeable and compatible with different imaging systems. The solution transforms into a hydrogel matrix by simply mixing with the cell culture medium. No cross-linking agent is required. Cells cultured in this system can be easily harvested with VitroGel Cell Recovery Solution. The hydrogel can also be tuned to be injectable for in vivo studies.
From 3D cell culture, 2D cell coating to animal injection, VitroGel makes it possible to bridge the in vitro and in vivo studies with the same platform system.
Mix & Match – 3D Cell Culture Your WAY!
Unique to VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels is the ability to tailor create a multi-functional hydrogel by blending different types of VitroGel. VitroGel MMP High Concentration can be “mix & matched” with other VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels such as VitroGel IKVAV, VitroGel YIGSR, VitroGel RGD, and VitroGel COL to create a customized multi-functional hydrogel. Using this flexible and powerful hydrogel system, scientists customize their 3D culture micro-environment for different applications.
Tunable Hydrogel Strength
Simply diluting the hydrogel controls the gel strength.
