General description

Gelatin is a heterogeneous mixture of water-soluble proteins of high average molecular masses, present in collagen. The proteins are extracted by boiling skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, etc. in water. Type-A gelatin is derived from acid-cured (acid-hydrolyzed) tissue. Type-B gelatin is derived from lime-cured (base/alkaline-hydrolyzed) tissue. Gelatin is a biocompatible polymer.


Prionex® Highly purified Type A has been used:
  • for coating cell culture to improve attachment of cells, and was added to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) to help stabilize Taq DNA
  • as a blocking reagent in Western blotting, enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and immunohistochemistry
  • as a component of media for species differentiation in bacteriology
  • as a delivery vehicle for the release of bioactive molecules and in the generation of scaffolds for engineering applications
  • in the murine lethality assay which is used to examine the ability of SMAbs to neutralize the effects of BoNT/A1 in vivo
