Synthetic Self-Assembling Peptide Hydrogels

PeptiGels® are ready-to-use fully synthetic self-assembling peptide hydrogels that are biologically relevant and formulated to meet your cells’ needs. PeptiGels® are used for 2D and 3D cell culture and are specifically designed with a range of mechanical properties and chemical functionalities to mimic the native cellular micro-environment to allow the growth of any cell type.

Product Description

PeptiGel® Alpha 1™ is a ready-to-use fully synthetic neutrally charged self-assembling peptide hydrogel. PeptiGel® Alpha 1™ is biologically relevant, mimics the extracellular matrix and is suitable for the culture of a variety of cells, including chondrocytes, nucleus pulposus cells and suspension cells.

PeptiGel® Alpha 1™ is a stiffer hydrogel when compared to Alpha 4™ but has consistent mechanical stiffness (G’) and pore size, resulting in excellent reproducible results. PeptiGel® Alpha 1™ can be used for both in-vitro and in-vivo applications with physiologically and clinically relevant results.

Value Starter Pack

When beginning to work with PeptiGels®, we recommend purchasing our Value Starter Pack. This includes PeptiGel® to test with your cells to enable you to identify the most suitable matrix environment. The Pack also includes a Gilson positive displacement pipette (various sizes are available), a box of sterile tips and a pack of Greiner Thincerts. Contact us for additional information.

Case Studies

PeptiGel® supports the formation of 3D breast cancer tumour models

PeptiGel® Alpha1™ supports a viable population of MCF-7 cells that are able to form spheroid structures. 

PeptiGel® outperforms collagen

PeptiGel® Alpha1™ supports MCF-7 spheroids that are significantly larger and contain more cells than spheroids in Type 1 collagen.
