Description

Advanced BioMatrix offers PhotoGel®, a purified and lyophilized methacrylated gelatin for photocrosslinkable hydrogels. PhotoGel® provides 3D tunable gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and crosslinked to provide various gel stiffness.

PhotoGel® is produced from methacrylated gelatin where the gelatin has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the ε-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini. >75% of the total lysine residues of the gelatin molecule have been methacrylated.

 

Kit 1 – PhotoGel®

#5208-1GM

 Item   Catalog   Number   Package   Size   Storage   Temperature 
 Methacrylated   Gelatin  #5208  1 gram (2 x 500 mg)  -20°C

 

Kit 2 – PhotoGel®-IRG

#5215-1KIT

 Item  Catalog   Number   Package   Size   Storage   Temperature 
 Methacrylated   Collagen  #5198  100 mg  2-10°C
  Irgacure   Photoinitiator  #5200  100 mg  2-10°C

 

The photoinitiator consists of Irgacure 2959 to be formulated in methanol (methanol not included) which allows UV crosslinking of the collagen at 365 nm.

 

Kit 3 – PhotoGel®-LAP

#5272-1KIT

 Item  Catalog   Number   Package   Size   Storage   Temperature 
 Methacrylated  Collagen  #5198  100 mg  2-10°C
 LAP  Photoinitiator  #5269  100 mg  2-8°C

 

The photoinitiator consists of LAP to be formulated in 1X PBS or cell culture media which allows blue light photocrosslinking of the collagen at 405 nm.

For aseptic work, we recommend filtering the solubilized LAP through a 0.2 micron button filter, as the photoinitiator does not come sterile.

 

Kit 4 – PhotoGel®-RUT

#5273-1KIT

 Item   Catalog   Number   Package   Size   Storage   Temperature 
 Methacrylated   Collagen  #5198  100 mg  2-10°C
 Ruthenium   Photoinitiator  #5246  100 mg  Room  Temperature
 Sodium  Persulfate   Photoinitiator  #5247  500 mg  Room  Temperature

 

The photoinitiator consists of Ruthenium and Sodium Persulfate to be formulated in 1X cell culture media or PBS, which allows visible light photocrosslinking of the collagen at 400-450 nm.

For aseptic work, we recommend filtering the solubilized ruthenium and sodium persulfate through 0.2 micron button filters, as the photoinitiators do not come sterile.
