Flexible solution for 2D and 3D cell cultures
Like all Viscofan BioEngineering collagen products, our soluble collagen is derived from bovine skin and provides in-vivo-like conditions to positively influence adherence, growth and differentiation of your cells. The nature-like matrix promotes authentic cell performance and enables novel developments in:
- tissue engineering e.g. of skin, osteogenic, endothelial, hepatocytic and other tissues
- analysis of cell migration, e.g. at metastasis, wound healing or development
Soluble collagen can be used as a thin coating for 2D cell culture in any cell culture dish. For use in 3D cell culture, collagen hydrogels can be generated using standard protocols. The high collagen concentration of 5 mg/ml provides freedom to select the optimal gel density for your cells.
In addition, this flexible matrix may be mixed with factors like other ECM components, antibiotics or growth factors, e.g. for directed cell manipulation. Supplemental cross-linking by the user is also feasible.
