INNOVATIVE BIO PRODUCTS
Collagen is the most common protein in human and animal tissue and can be found in various organs, e.g. tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood vessels and dermis. Collagen I forms one of the essential structural elements of the Extracellular Matrix (ECM). Therefore, collagen is an ideal substrate for in vitrocell culture and tissue engineering. Our products contain non-cross-linked, native collagen fibers and are produced from pure bovine Collagen type I sourced in countries where BSE risk is negligible.
Our scaffolds are best suited for cultivation of adherent primary cells, stem cells and cell lines. A large number of cell types, e.g. embryonic and adult stem cells, chondrocytes, osteoblasts, cardiomyocytes, neuronal cells, neuroglia cells, endothelial cells, keratinocytes, hepatocytes and muscle cells were tested with excellent results.
In the field of Regenerative Medicine the high biocompatibility and the high mechanical strength make our collagen membranes ideal for transplantation experiments as they permit the easy and sterile translocation of the intact cell scaffold complex.
