CYTRIX hydrogel technology overcomes the challenges of existing microfluidic hydrogel formation techniques, such as temperature control or time-critical mixing procedures. This alginate polymer-based hydrogel system provides a cell-friendly solution to the harmful temperatures, pH changes, and use of UV-light of existing hydrogel formation techniques.
Combined with the Pico-Gen™ double aqueous biochip and Pico-Surf™ surfactant, the biocompatible and microchannel-friendly kit enables the generation of defined, reproducible, tailorable hydrogel microstructures for 3D cell culture, organoids, single-cell analysis, and many other applications. This solution allows researchers to individually study valuable cells over many weeks rather than days in defined microenvironments that mimic the natural extracellular matrix.
The CYTRIX hydrogel can be purchased as:
- A standalone Hydrogel Kit – £499
- A bundle containing the Hydrogel Kit, Pico-Gen™ Chip and Pico-Surf™ 10mL, 2% in Novec 7500 surfactant – £750
