VitroGel RGD High Concentration

VitroGel® RGD High Concentration is a tunable, xeno-free (animal origin-free) hydrogel system modified with cell adhesive peptide RGD to promote cell attachment and cell-matrix interactions during the 3D cell culture. VitroGel RGD High Concentration comes with VitroGel Dilution Solution to adjust the final hydrogel strength from 10 to 4000 Pa. 

VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels are our 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 our 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® RGD High Concentration can be “mix & matched” with other VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels such as VitroGel® IKVAV, VitroGel® YIGSR, VitroGel® MMP, 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.
