At The Cutting Edge of Science

Biogelx is a biomaterials company which designs and supplies peptide hydrogels for cell culture, precisely tuned to the requirements of the cell. These products have applications in fundamental cell research, toxicology/drug development and may ultimately be translated to cell therapy/regenerative medicine. The chemical and physical properties of the hydrogels match the characteristics experienced by cells within tissues, thus enabling the study and manipulation of cells in a realistic 3D environment which is simple, fully defined and tuneable.

The Company's patented hydrogel products are currently selling in the US, Europe and Asia.

The product's unique cell-matching capabilities clearly provide academic users, medical researchers and pharmaceutical companies with a serious alternative to competing 3D cell culture products.
