|Product Name||Methacrylated Gelatin (Gel-MA)|
|Form||Faint yellow to white foam|
|Overview||Blafar UV-curable Methacrylated Gelatin is a natural protein making it particularly suited to cell culture, 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 methacrylated gelatin is suitable for tissue engineering applications, especially for the production of hydrogels in the investigation of wound healing. Blafar’s methacrylated gelatin has >98% purity and can be crosslinked with a very short gelation time under UV irradiation (<10 min). All batches of Methacrylated Gelatin are provided with the full certificate of analysis.
