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 for authentic cell performance is best suited for
- tissue engineering of skin, bone, vessels and other systems
- analysis of cell migration, e.g. at metastasis, wound healing or development
Soluble collagen can be applied as a thin coating to any cell culture dish. For use in 3D cell culture, 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. 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 customer is also feasible if desired.
Soluble collagen comes as a sterile, pipettable solution, without prior pepsin treatment and with a long shelf-life.
