Like all Viscofan BioEngineering collagen products, our soluble collagen type I is derived from bovine skin that is processed in a standardized industrial process at the highest quality in research grade.
In contrast to our fibrous collagen products, the acid-soluble fraction of collagen is extracted. The clear solution with a concentration of 5 mg/ml can be easily pipetted. Using standard protocols, the collagen in solution can be polymerized resulting in a hydrogel with adjustable density to be used for 3D cell culture. The biomaterial has not been treated enzymatically. It can also be mixed with additional components according to need. The product is also suitable for thin coating of wellplates to improve adherence of cells cultures.
