Reasons to adopt jellyfish collagen compared with mammalian collagens include:
•Prion & disease-vector free material.
•Inert & significantly cleaner at the miRNA level.
•Biocompatible offering a low immunogenicity profile.
•Consistent from one batch to another because of the simplistic physiology of jellyfish.
•Similar to mammalian and human type I, II, III, V collagens because of the ancient chemical lineage.
•Our collagen has been categorised as ‘Marine Type-0’ due to its versatility and not conforming to the more traditional mammalian ‘types’. International Journal of molecular Sciences . Flaig et al.
•Compatible with all existing cell culture methodologies (self-coating, imaging, etc).
