LunaGel™ is a photocrosslinkable extracellular matrix (ECM) based on chemically-modified pharmaceutical grade gelatin. The major components of LunaGel™ include the ECM proteins collagen type I, III, IV, and V, as well as connective tissue glycoproteins and proteoglycans. LunaGel™ retains the intrinsic cell-instructive bioactivity of natural ECMs facilitating cell attachment, proliferation, differentiation, migration, and proteolytic degradation. LunaGel™’s unique photocrosslinking technology allows unprecedented control over matrix porosity and stiffness, allowing researchers to replicate the physicochemical properties of a variety of healthy and diseased tissues in 3D cell culture applications.
LunaGel™ ECM has been successfully used in a wide range of applications including cell attachment and proliferation, stem cell culture and differentiation, mechanotransduction assays, cancer spheroid assays, angiogenesis assays, 3D bioprinting, tissue engineering, and more.
LunaGel™ - Porcine Skin Gelatin - Photocrosslinkable Extracellular Matrix
Price is in Australian Dollars (AUD) and excludes GST.
LunaGel™ is supplied as a sterile solution with freeze-dried photoinitiator.
Reconstitute the photoinitiator in PBS, mix with LunaGel™ ECM and cells, and photocrosslink the solution using the Luna Crosslinker™ to form 3D cell culture models. By controlling the duration of light exposure you can produce hydrogels with a specified stiffness. Add your favourite culture media and you're culturing in 3D!
This kit contains enough LunaGel™ to create a total volume of 10 mL hydrogel.
5 mL LunaGel™ ECM (2x solution, sterile)
5 vials of photoinitiator (freeze-dried, sterile)
