Why to choose an animal-free matrix?
Free your 3D cell assays from foreign molecules (DNA, RNA, proteins). Foreign molecules bias to readouts and introduce unintended cell behavior.
GrowDex hydrogels have reproducible and quality-controlled lots. You don’t have to reserve and screen specific lots anymore, as there is no variation in the GrowDex matrix composition, unlike in animal or human based matrices.
NFC is clinically translatable and can be applied in future therapies (regenerative medicine, cell/gene therapy, implants). Our NFC is manufactured according to ISO 13485 Medical devices Quality management systems. Product biological safety has been evaluated according to ‘ISO 10993 - Biological evaluation of medical devices’: genotoxicity and cytotoxicity. In addition, skin irritation and skin sensitization of NFC have been tested in the context of clinically approved NFC based wound dressing, FibDex®.
