|Product Name||Thiolated Gelatin (Gel-SH)|
|Form||Faint yellow foam|
|Overview||Blafar Fast-Gelling Thiolated Gelatin is modified from a natural protein making it particularly suited to cell culture, tissue engineering, cosmetic and medical device applications. It may be used in conjunction with ECM proteins such as collagen, laminin, or fibronectin for most 3D cell culture and tissue-engineering applications.
The procedure for modifying our gelatin product was developed in collaboration with leading scientists in University College Dublin, Ireland. Our thiolated gelatin is suitable for tissue engineering applications, especially for the production of hydrogels in the investigation of wound healing. Blafar’s thiolated gelatin has >98% purity and can be crosslinked with a very short gelation time with multi-vinyl cross-linkers. All batches of thiol-modified Gelatin are provided with the full certificate of analysis.
