PhotoAlginate® is a sterile, lyophilized, methacrylated alginate. It creates 3D hydrogels that can be prepared at multiple concentrations and crosslinked using light or calcium to provide various gel stiffness. PhotoAlginate® can be mixed with other photocrosslinkable ECM’s.

SKU: #5310 Categories: ,


We offer PhotoAlginate®, a methacrylated alginate for photocrosslinkable hydrogels or for mixing with other photocrosslinkable hydrogels (such as PhotoGel, PhotoCol or PhotoHA). PhotoAlginate® can form 3D gels and can be prepared at various concentrations and photocrosslinked to provide various gel stiffness. PhotoAlginate® is unique in that it can also be crosslinked with calcium. This product can be ordered by itself (200 mg of lyophilized sterile powder), or as a kit that comes with a photoinitiator for photocrosslinking (see table below):
