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 4 PLUS™ is a ready-to-use fully synthetic positively charged peptide hydrogel functionalized with fibronectin (RGD) and collagen (GFOGER) motifs, mimicking the extracellular matrix more closely and encouraging better cellular adhesion.

PeptiGel® Alpha 4 PLUS™ is suitable for the culture of a wide variety of cells, including primary cells, immortalized cells and stem cells, by offering enhanced cellular adhesion and cell-ECM signaling. 

PeptiGel® Alpha 4 PLUS™ is a highly consistent hydrogel in mechanical stiffness (G’) and pore size, resulting in excellent reproducible results for both in-vitro and in-vivo applications.

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.
