GrowDex® Hydrogel Range

Natural ready to use hydrogels for 3D cell culture applications providing convenience and consistent results.


GrowDex hydrogels have many properties that make them ideal for culturing cells in 3D

Simple & Customisable

Our biocompatible hydrogels are made from just 2 components, nanofibrillar cellulose and purified water.  They can be customised easily by simply adding components such as growth factors or proteins directly to the gel. Stiffness of the gel is achieved by dilution the your cell media.

*Excludes GrowDex-A

Animal free*

Tunable Stiffness

Convenient & Easy to Use

All our hydrogels are provided ready to use in handy syringes for easy handling and dispensing and can be stored at ambient temperature. No cross-linking,  gelation or sonication steps are required, just mix the hydrogel with your media and cells, dispense and incubate.  Cells or organoids can be recovered using GrowDase in a one-step process without harm from mechanical damage.

Ready to use

One-step cell recovery

Reliable & Reproducible

Our hydrogels are manufactured to the highest standards and their performance measured against strict quality control criteria, so you can be sure the performance will be the same regardless of the Lot ordered. The hydrogels are not autofluorescent so imaging with any microscope or high content imaging system is simple and the ambient handling of the hydrogels makes them ideal for high throughput assays.
