Collagen is the main protein in the composition of the extracellular matrix and therefore the most common protein in cognitive tissues. Collagen is composed of triple helix that forms fibers. It is mainly found in fibrous tissues such as tendons, ligaments and skin.
Since collagen is the main protein of the extracellular matrix, it is also the most used protein for coating culture support in order to create a physiological environment for cells. It facilitates cell attachment, growth, differentiation and migration.
The collagen used for cell culture can have several origins (human, rat, bovine, and others). We now offer a new generation collagen derived from jellyfish that has many benefits.
Collagen comes in 2 forms: in ready-to-use solution and in powder to be reconstituted to achieve the coating of culture media.
