SphereCol® human Type I collagen coated beads are ideal for growing cell in suspension. The collagen coated beads provide a natural in vivo-like environment to promote high cell growth while providing a large surface area for cells to attach with optimal surface area to volume ratios. SphereCol® provides a 3D bio-scaffold which is optimal in many cell culture procedures.
SphereCol®, human collagen coated beads are coated with highly purified Type I human collagen derived from a human fibroblast cell culture process, VitroCol. The collagen provides an optimal coating on the beads to enhance cell attachment, cell viability, cell proliferation and cell function. The collagen beads range in size from about 125 to 212 micron.
