Cellendes synthetic hydrogel for cultivating cells
Cellendes GmbH has developed an innovative synthetic hydrogel for cultivating cells.
Cellendes GmbH has developed an innovative synthetic hydrogel for cultivating cells. This enables better testing of new active substances, for example in the pharmaceutical industry, because it facilitates a more natural cell environment. The synthetic hydrogel for three-dimensional applications can be used by researchers to cultivate cells within a precisely defined matrix. The biomimetic gels from Cellendes GmbH have key advantages over other hydrogels already on the market. Conventional gels for three-dimensional cultivation are made in most cases from animal substrates such as collagen. The disadvantage of this is that the composition cannot be varied and any unwanted components are retained; undefined impurities may occur and distort the study results. Synthetic gels currently on the market do not offer the flexibility to incorporate bioactive substances such as adhesion peptides and selected proteins designed to control cell behaviour. The company's gels are fully synthetic, but it is also possible to include bioactive substances. Users can obtain a precisely designed matrix from the defined components and can test the impact of particular substances on the cells in a three-dimensional environment.
