Overview

VitroGel™ is a ready-to-use, xeno-free tunable hydrogel system which closely mimics the natural extracellular matrix (ECM) environment.

VitroGel creates a functional and optimized environment to make cells feel like at home. The hydrogel system is room temperature stable, has a neutral pH, transparent, permeable and compatible with different imaging systems. The solution transforms into a tunable hydrogel matrix by simply mixing with cell culture medium. Cells cultured in this system can be easily harvested out with our VitroGel Cell Recovery Solution. The hydrogel can also be tuned to be injectable for in vivo studies.

From 2D coating, 3D culture to animal injection, VitroGel makes it possible to bridge the in vitro and in vivo studies with the same platform system.

VitroGel RGD-PLUS is a ready-to-use tunable hydrogel system modified with a high concentration of RGD cell adhesive peptide, promoting the cell attachment and cell-matrix interactions during the 3D cell culture. This hydrogel system has 3X RGD peptide compared to regular VitroGel 3D-RGD, which maintain a high level of integrin binding activities even after hydrogel dilution.

Figure 1.

3D culture of OP9 cells in both VitroGel 3D-RGD and VitroGel RGD-PLUS. (both hydrogels have been prepared at 1:3 dilution with VitroGel Dilution Solution (Type 1), The images were taken on day 2 and 7) VitroGel RGD-PLUS has better support for OP9 cell proliferation and cell-cell communication. The stronger cell-matrix interactions help the cells to form the cell-networking structure.

Figure 2.

3D view of OP9 cells growth in VitroGel 3D-RGD and VitroGel RGD-PLUS. Cell networking structure formed in VitroGel RGD-PLUS and only single cell suspension has been observed in VitroGel 3D-RGD.

Figure 3.

3D culture of U-87 MG cells in both VitroGel 3D-RGD and VitroGel RGD-PLUS. Cells can grow in 3D hydrogel at 1:1 and 1:3 dilution of both hydrogel. However, the morphologies of the 3D cell culture are very different. Unlike the spheroids structure in VitroGel 3D-RGD, U-87 MG cells perform better cell networking structure and the cell morphology in VitroGel RGD-PLUS indicates a better cell-cell and cell-matrix interaction.
