TeloCol®-3 bovine collagen solution is derived from an acid extraction process yielding a telopeptide-intact collagen. TeloCol® is soluble telocollagen in 0.01 N HCL. The telopeptide regions at both ends of the collagen chain, N- and C-telopeptide regions, are maintained.
TeloCol®-3 collagen is approximately 95% Type I collagen with the remainder being comprised of Type III collagen. Each product includes a bottle containing 50 ml of collagen solution accompanied with a bottle of pre-formulated neutralizing solution for the formation of a collagen gel. This product is supplied at a concentration of approximately 3 mg/ml. TeloCol®-3 is sterile filtered and provided in user-friendly packaging for use and storage.
TeloCol®-3 is ideal for coating of surfaces, providing preparation of thin layers for culturing cells, or use as a solid gel.
