Ultrapure coating of medical devices
Viscolma® is a suspension of native collagen type I fibers produced from bovine skin in a highly standardized industrial process. The ultrapure aqueous suspension at acidic pH retains the in vivo-like structure of insoluble collagen fibers, which exhibit excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability. Our products provide natural signals for better attachment, growth and differentiation even of challenging cells and accelerate complex tissue formation. The fibrillar collagen suspension with its putty-like consistency contains up to 15% collagen in water and can be used for individual research applications such as the development of 3D-scaffolds. Beyond that, with its excellent biocompatibility, Viscolma® is the ideal material for coating of medical devices or implants.
For easy bench-to-bedside transfer, Viscolma® is available in research and medical grade quality (in progress).
