HydroMatrix Peptide Hydrogel

A synthetic peptide nanofiber scaffold, HydroMatrix offers the precision and control of a synthesized matrix with the natural 3-D architecture of a highly crosslinked peptide hydrogel. The HydroMatrix scaffold self-assembles from fluid precursors into a highly crosslinked peptide 3-dimensional hydrogel, responding to changes in temperature or ionic strength. By adjusting the concentration of the HydroMatrix solution, researchers are able to control the flexibility of the 3-D architecture, and tailor the structure to meet their individual needs. HydroMatrix promotes cell growth and migration, and has been shown to support the proliferation of many cell types, including neural stem cells, neurons, glia, astrocytes, fibroblasts, and keratinocytes.

  • Precision of a highly synthesized matrix allows you to customize and control the scaffold
  • Natural 3-D architecture of highly crosslinked peptide hydrogel creates a natural environment for your cells
  • Proven proliferation of many cell types, including neural stem cells, neurons, glia, astrocytes, fibroblasts, and keratinocytes

What makes HydroMatrix superior to other 3-D systems is that it’s a fully synthetic material with no possible source of infection or contamination from to animal-derived matter, allowing researchers to focus on more important things.

Hydromatrix Peptide Hydrogel
HydroMatrix Peptide Hydrogel. Rat neural stem cells (NSC) cultured on three surfaces. NSC grew poorly on tissue culture plastic (A) and slightly better in poly-l-lysine/laminincoated plates (B). NSC demonstrated excellent growth on HydroMatrix peptide hydrogel 0.5% (w/v) (C).
