3-D Life PEG-Link is a component of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system. The PEG-Link molecule consists of polyethylene glycol carrying a thiol at each end. When combined with polymers of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system, thiol groups on PEG-Link form stable thioether bonds with the thiol-reactive groups on the polymers, which results in the formation of the hydrogel. PEG-Link can be used with 3-D Life functionalised polymers Mal-PVA, Mal-Dextran, SG-PVA and SG-Dextran.For using this product please consult General Protocols GP-1 "Preparation of 3-D Life Fast Gelling Hydrogels" or GP-2 "Preparation of 3-D Life Slow Gelling Hydrogels" and the 3-D Life Hydrogels User Guide.
3-D Life PEG-Link is used together with thiol-reactive polymers of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system to establish 3-D cell cultures.
When used with polymers of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system up to 6 ml 3-D Life Hydrogel can be generated, depending on the stiffness of the gel.
