PeptiGel® Gamma 4™
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.
PeptiGel® Gamma 4™ is a ready-to-use fully synthetic positively charged soft peptide hydrogel. PeptiGel® Gamma 4™ is half the mechanical strength of PeptiGel® Alpha 4™ gel. This hydrogel is biologically relevant and has been formulated for the culture of a wide variety of cell types requiring a softer ECM environment including primary cells, immortalized cell lines and stem cells.
PeptiGel® Gamma 4™ is highly consistent in mechanical stiffness (G’) and pore size, resulting in excellent reproducible results. PeptiGel® Gamma 4™ 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.
