PODS Human TGF-α 1 Billion PeptiGel
PODS® Human TGF-α in combination with your choice of PeptiGels.
PODS-PeptiGels combines two existing cell culture technologies - sustained release growth factors (PODS®) and synthetic peptide hydrogels (PeptiGels®). Together, these provide a reproducible and highly controlled environment for 3D cell culture. The ready-to-use PODS-PeptiGel kits allow researchers to tailor their cell culture system to suit their individual cell types by selecting specific growth factors and peptide hydrogel combinations for a truly relevant in vitro system.
PODS Growth Factors
PODS® are cubic crystals made from 100% protein that slowly release their protein cargo through nanopores. This sustained bioavailability enables researchers to better control the behaviour of cells in hydrogels. The conditions generated by PODS® crystals generates stable growth factor concentrations enabling precise control of the cell culture environment, significantly improving the health and quality of cells.
If you would like to use multiple PODS® growth factors as part of the combination kit, please get in touch.
PeptiGels® are ready-to-use, fully synthetic, biologically relevant peptide hydrogels that are formulated to meet your specific cell culture needs. PeptiGels® are designed with a range of mechanical properties and biochemical functionalities to closely mimic the native cellular micro-environment to allow the growth of a wide range of cell types.
If you would like a bespoke PeptiGel® as part of the combination kit, please get in touch.
