Collagen solution for cell and tissue culturing is highly Purified collagen solution manufactured in KOUKEN (Tokyo) advanced technology with excellent quality control.
Cell and tissue cultures with Koken collagen solutions can express cellular functions like in vivo cells. Collagen not only plays the role of physical scaffold for the proliferating cells, but also enhances cell adhesion, proliferation and function. Collagen creates a natural extracellular environment that is important for cell communication and layer formation. The synthesizing capability of albumin, a functions shared among hepatocytes, is maintained at a high level when cultured on plates coated with collagen solution. When skin fibroblasts are cultured three-dimensionally on collagen gel , the whole collagen contracts from the contractility of the cells producing a dermis model that closely resembles the structure of live dermis.
