Bio-Inspired Gels

Biogelx hydrogels are made up of simple, short, yet biologically relevant peptides. Our patented technology allows precise control over the mechanical and chemical properties of the gel.

The ability to create hydrogels of varying stiffness and chemical composition means that the matrix can be tuned to replicate the exact environment your cells need to grow, develop and thrive in a realistic in vivo manner.

Biogelx products are already being used worldwide in applications ranging from fundamental 3D cell culture and stem cell research to development of toxicology platforms and more realistic in vitro cancer models. The tuneable nature of Biogelx technology has also led to the use of our hydrogels as bioinks in bioprinting.

The gels are entirely animal-free, delivering a consistent uniformity. They offer a nanoscale fibre size with at least 99% water content. This replicates an in vivo environment for cells and allows, for example, the development of patient-specific, cell-based bench top systems.

  • Supplied as a lyophilized peptide powder
  • Rehydrate with water to achieve pre-gel solution
  • Add to a cell culture well plate, along with the cell media of your choice
  • Cell media encourages fibres to lock, giving desired gel stiffness controlled by you
  • Cells can be cultured inside the gel (3D culture) or on top after addition of cell culture media (2D culture)
  • Protocols for product handling available
