3D Cell Culture Hydrogel System - VitroGel®


Why choose VitroGel for your 3D Cell Culture?

VitroGel® (TheWell Bioscience) is an animal origin-free hydrogel system closely mimicking the natural extracellular matrix (ECM) environment.

Your cells grown in this hydrogel will possess morphology and cellular behaviour close to their natural state.

This distinct system brings many advantages to bridge in vitro and in vivo studies through 3D cell culture and beyond.

VitroGel® Ready-to-use Hydrogels

The ready-to-use VitroGel hydrogels have optimized formulations of multi-functional ligands and concentration to support a wide range of cell types for different applications, including various 3D cell models, stem cell spheroid, and organoids.
Each hydrogel is ready to mix with cell suspension directly.


 VitroGel® High Concentration Hydrogels

This high concentration formulation give you maximum flexibility to manipulate the mechanical strength of the hydrogel from 10 to 4000 Pa. The hydrogels come with several types of functional ligand modifications. The system enables you to investigate cell behaviour in response to an individual functional ligand, or to create multi-functional hydrogel combinations by blending different versions of VitroGel.


How does gelation work within VitroGel Hydrogels?


How does VitroGel perform compared to other systems?

VitroGel gives an outstanding balance of biological functions and operating feasibility. The system can closely mimic the natural extracellular matrix and allow the high-throughput performance to build robust 3D cell models.

Five Cell Culture methods with any VitroGel hydrogels

Choose either the “ready-to-use” hydrogel system for optimized formulation and simple operating process or the high-concentration hydrogel system to create customized microenvironment by “Mix & Match” and tuning of the hydrogel.

To inspire you for creative ideas, here we list five of the most popular culture methods to use the hydrogels. Cells cultured in these methods can be easily harvested out with the VitroGel® Cell Recovery Solution for downstream analysis or subculture.

The Mix & Match System

With the VitroGel High Concentration hydrogels, you'll gain more ability to manipulate the biophysical and biological properties of the cell culture environment.

Each single cell type can respond to different functional ligands such as RGD, Collagen, Laminin, and MMP. VitroGel hydrogel system is a powerful tool for you to study many cellular processes and behaviors in response to different extracellular matrix functional ligands.
