Synthetic Self-Assembling Peptide Hydrogels

PeptiGels® are ready-to-use fully synthetic 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 2™ is a ready-to-use fully synthetic positively charged peptide hydrogel. PeptiGel® Alpha 2™ is biologically relevant, mimics the extracellular matrix and is suitable for the culture of a variety of cells, including neuronal cells.

PeptiGel® Alpha 2™ 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 2™ can be used for both in-vitro and in-vivo applications with physiologically and clinically relevant results.
