TrueGel3D Crosslinker

PEG non cell-degradable crosslinker

Purchase

Description

Components

TRUEPEG contains PEG non cell-degradable crosslinker lyophilized and water.

Application

TRUEPEG is used to crosslink PVA and dextran polymers to generate stable hydrogel.

Caution

Avoid prolong exposure of PEG non cell-degradable crosslinker to air.

Features and Benefits

Non-MMP degradable.

General description

PEG-Link is comprised of polyethylene glycol and thiol (SH) groups at each end. The thiol groups form stable thioether bond with thiol-reactive groups of the polymers (Mal-PVA, Mal-Dextran, SG-PVA and SG-Dextran), which results in stable hydrogel. The matrix metalloproteases secreted by cells cannot cleave PEG crosslinker.
