useful tool for three dimensional culture and research of tissue engineering as 3D scaffold

Atelocollagen sponge [ MIGHTY ]



Atelocollagen sponge MIGHTY consists primarily of type I atelocollagen derived from bovine dermis and is strong enough to withstand compressive loading of up to 30kPa (single time).
Culturing cells in MIGHTY under cyclic compressive loading (cyclic load of 10 to 20kPa) provides more in vivo-like environment to evaluate cell function. MIGHTY is also applicable as a scaffold for conventional 3D cell culture.

Characteristics of Atelocollagen FAQ
Atelocollagen is a collagen solubilized by protease, but its physical properties are virtually identical to those of natural, unsolubilized collagen. Furthermore, atelocollagen additionally has superior characteristics;----- More
