Make the switch to PeptiGel

Accelerate your research

We provide innovative products and services for life science research.

Our sustained-release PODS growth factors, conventional growth factors, and small molecules guide and support cells. Our wide range of surfaces and extracellular matrix products, including Softwell and the versatile PeptiGel self-assembling hydrogels enable more challenging cell culture. Our highly cited karyotyping service keeps track of cell stability.

For extracellular vesicle research, Cell Guidance Systems products and services enable the purification and subsequent analysis of exosomes and other EVs. We're here to support you in your research.

Comparing BME vs PeptiGel hydrogels

Comparing BME vs PeptiGel hydrogels

When you think about 3D cell culture, you probably think about Matrigel, after all, it is the current market leader in 3D cell culture. Matrigel does have limitations, however, which is something that Cell Guidance Systems are tackling with a fully synthetic alternative. This blog article will discuss the differences between Matrigel and PeptiGels, fully synthetic (and 100% animal-free) and the benefits you can expect from each.

What is scaffold-based 3D culture?

What is scaffold-based 3D culture?

Before a drug is deemed suitable for patients, it must undergo a rigorous testing process and cost-effectiveness analyses. The testing begins in a lab where researchers investigate the process behind a disease at either cellular or molecular level. In the past, this has been completed using 2D cell culture, which is convenient and accessible, but more often, cells are grown in a complex 3D environment.

Alternatives to animal-derived research reagents

Alternatives to animal-derived research reagents

Animal derived materials remain an important part of biological research. Progress is being made to replace these with better defined non-animal alternatives. This is a huge task. The goal of developing alternatives to materials such as FBS and MatrigelĀ® remains elusive.
