PhotoGel® is lyophilized methacrylated gelatin, available in sterile or non-sterile format. PhotoGel® provides 3D gelatin hydrogels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and photocrosslinked (requires a photoinitiator) to provide various gel stiffness.
Advanced BioMatrix offers PhotoGel® , a purified and lyophilized methacrylated gelatin for photocrosslinkable hydrogels. PhotoGel® provides 3D tunable gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and crosslinked to provide various gel stiffness.
The PhotoGel® kit consists of purified methacrylated porcine gelatin and a UV Photoinitiator (365 nm). The gelatin is type A 300 bloom. This individual product only contains the methacrylated gelatin. Please visit a PhotoGel® Kit page for purchasing the entire photocrosslinking kit.
1 gram (2 x 500 mg)
PhotoGel® is produced from methacrylated gelatin where the gelatin has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the ε-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. >75% of the total lysine residues of the gelatin molecule have been methacrylated. The photoinitiator consists of Irgacure 2959 to be formulated in methanol (methanol not included) which allows UV crosslinking of the collagen at 365 nm.
