Cell cultures are one of the most commonly used research tools. We understand that scientists need ready-to-use products for cell cultures and so LifeGel is supplied on standard cell culture plates. All you have to do is open the plate and start to use it!
A layer of LifeGel is placed in a dish, and the cells are then seeded on the surface of the LifeGel where they form 3D structures/spheroids. The cells can grow in multiple layers, migrate within the hydrogel and interact with each other, which recreates the natural environment in which they originally live.
LifeGel can be produced in different variations – with different parameters of key characteristics such as hardness, density or elasticity. We have conducted many experiments to find the most suitable combination of these characteristics to fit particular experiments and cell cultures. We know how important it is to have well-matched parameters for optimal cell growth.
