*bespoke and non cross-linked formats available on request and subject to volume
FEATURES & BENEFITS
||Offers a viable alternative to mammalian and synthetic
||Highly purified jellyfish collagen alternative providing
consistent, repeatable results.
|Batch to batch consistency
||Offers improved research productivity allowing
security of product consistency and reproducible
||EDC cross-linked scaffolds for enhanced mechanical and
thermal stability, resorbable in vivo1.
|Evolutionary ancient collagen demonstrating
sequence homology to collagen I and II
|Universal applications for multiple cell types and
|Manufactured according to ISO13485
||Follows a quality controlled manufacturing process
producing a consistent scaffold.
|Uniform pore size
||Promotes cell seeding, invasion, proliferation and
differentiation. Allows for growth factor permeation
and gas exchange ensuring long-term cell survival.
||Jellagen® 3D Scaffolds exhibit similar physiological
components and properties to the ECM of the in vivo
The grade of Jellagen® jellyfish collagen used to manufacture these scaffolds has been tested to verify its applicability for routine cell culture research using human primary and iPSC-derived cell lines. Jellagen® Jellyfish collagen has been shown to promote cellular attachment, proliferation and differentiation to develop functional matrices.
Cell lines that have been cultured successfully on Jellagen® jellyfish collagen include, but are not limited to: Chondrogenic progenitor cells, ovarian cancer cell lines, and iPSC-derived microglia.
||Jellagen® 3D Scaffolds
||6, 24, 48 and 96-well scaffolds, cast in plates
||Store at room temperature
||Non-tissue culture treated, polystyrene and
||White to off-white
||Approximately 7.0 – 7.4 when suspended in PBS or tissue
