3-D Life SG-PVA
3-D Life SG-PVA is a component of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system. It contains thiol-reactive polyvinyl alcohol (SG-PVA) that can be used together with PEG-Link (Cat. No. L50-1 or L50-3) or CD-Link (Cat. No. L60-1 or L60-3) to set up slow-gelling biomimetic hydrogels for 3-D cell culture.
|Description||3-D Life SG-PVA is a component of the 3-D Life Hydrogel system. It contains polyvinyl alcohol functionalized with thiol-reactive groups (SG-PVA). It can be used together with PEG-Link (Cat. No. L50-1 or L50-3) or CD-Link (Cat. No. L60-1 or L60-3) to set up slow gelling, cell-compatible hydrogels. 10 x CB (pH 7.2) buffer allows control of pH and osmotic conditions during gel formation in the presence of cells. For more information and instructions, please consult the General Protocol GP-2 "Preparation of 3-D Life Slow Gelling Hydrogels" and the 3-D Life Hydrogels User Guide.|
|Application||3-D cell cultures; embedment and immobilization of cells or tissues|
|Quantity||Allows formation of up to 6 ml 3-D Life Hydrogel depending on the stiffness of the gel, if used together with thiol-functionalized polymers (3-D Life PEG-Link or CD-Link).|
