Hydrogel for 2D & 3D Cell Culture

We offer different types of hydrogels for your application. Depending on your project, the organoids or cells you use and on the ready out systems different types of hydrogels should be of intetest.

You can choose between natural, organotypic and “smart” synthetic hydogels;  just use the links on the left side to learn more!

Hydrogels are polymeric matrices that can entrap large quantities of water or biological fluids which are insoluble in aqueous environments.

As hydrogels are biocompatible, tunable, biodegradable, porous and have a properly mechanical strength they have advantages in comparison to other biomaterials.

Generally we can divide hydrogels by their nature (natural,semi-synthetic and synthetic) and their features (type of crosslinking, stiffness, elasticity, cell adhesion, porosity,degradation properties and cell-specifuc bioactivity). So called “smart” hydrogels being  responsive to stimuli (e.g. temperature, pH, photo/light, electro- and magnetic, glucose and biologicaöl/biochemical) are of high interest as organoids and/or cells are easily accesible.

It depends all on your application, cell type and-read out system which kind of hydrogels or 3D cell culture technnology might be the best.
