PODS® Growth Factors

Standard proteins are extracted from cells using harsh processes that damage the protein, fail to remove impurities (which can have a biological effect) and leave the protein product unprotected from proteases. Although these proteins work instantly, they don't work for long. PODS® proteins are captured within the cell in a polyhedrin crystal lattice which protects the protein against physical and chemical damage. Once deployed in cell culture, the polyhedrin crystal loosens its grip on the cargo protein providing a sustained release into the local environment. PODS® crystals provide a depot formulation for sustained protein release over days, weeks and months (when combined with a hydrogel). PODS® crystals can be attached to surfaces in order to functionalize them and thus create localized concentrations and physiologically relevant gradients. 

  • Depot formulation provides sustained release and maintains physiologically relevant concentrations of growth factors over extended periods
  • Proteins remain folded throughout production process providing inherent biological activity
  • Manufactured in insect cells for important post-translational modifications
  • Animal Free manufacture
  • Custom service available. Difficult-to-purify proteins can be made

A comprehensive guide to PODS® technology is available.
