MaxGel ECM is used for the following applications:
  • Extracellular matrix (ECM) protein binding assays
  • Cell invasion assay
  • Cell culture
This product creates a three-dimensional environment that improves cellular proflieration by promoting cell growth and migration, and has been shown to aid the proliferation of many types of cells, including human embryonic stem cells, neural stem cells, neurons, glia, astrocytes, fibroblasts, hepatocytes, and keratinocytes.


MaxGel ECM contains human extracellular matrix components including collagens, laminin, fibronectin, tenascin, elastin and a number of proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans. This basement membrane extract reproduces the cooperative interactions between epithelia and mesenchyme that occur during the development and organotypic cell culture of skin.


MaxGel will remain stable for at least 1 year when stored at -70°C.
