You want to improve your research using a relevant microenvironment for your cells, however the variety of products on the market is huge. To find out which one is the best for you is both time consuming and costly. You don’t want to test out multiple products and waste time reading lengthy protocols. Ideally, you want a product that provides you with biologically relevant microenvironments for your cells and reproducible results.
A simple tool to find the best environment for any cell type
We provide you with the ideal tool to rapidly test a large variety of cell microenvironments at once. denovoMATRIX technology allows us to incorporate the most important biological ligands for cell adhesion, spreading and robust growth within our biomimetic coatings. We have compiled 96 coating compositions which represent 96 different microenvironments in the screenMATRIX. Find out which biological ligands are responsible for cell adhesion, differentiation or changes in your cell phenotype. Turn pipetting into publications, and interest into insight.
5X 96-well precoated plates
The screenMATRIX is assembled using the glycosaminoglycan sugars (GAGs) dextran sulfate, heparin, chondroitin and dermatan. With the exception of the synthetic dextran sulfate, these molecules are naturally present in the extracellular matrix (ECM) and have important roles in signaling as well as growth factor binding. Peptides, which mimic various ECM proteins, complete the composition of the screenMATRIX. Some recapitulate important ECM adhesion proteins such as fibronectin, vitronectin, laminin and collagen, others mimic signaling proteins such as bone morphogenic protein, fibroblast growth factor and transforming growth factor (among others).
