GrowDex® Hydrogel Range
Next generation solution for reproducible and scalable animal-free 3D cell culture applications providing convenience and consistent results.
Pure & Reproducible
Clean and well-defined hydrogels consisting of only nanofibrillar cellulose and purified water. No animal DNA interfering with readouts.
Do not add variation to your results. Our GrowDex hydrogels are manufactured to the highest standards with strict quality control criteria, so you can be sure the performance will be the same regardless of the production batch ordered.
Convenient & Easy to Use
Ready to use
No gel preparation steps required. GrowDex hydrogels are provided ready to use, and they can be used and stored at room temperature. Just mix the hydrogel with your media and cells, dispense and incubate.
One-step cell recovery
Cells and organoids can be recovered from GrowDex with a gentle one-step enzymatic process with our GrowDase without affecting the cells.
Easy and fast handling. Store and work at room temperature, no need to work on ice or at elevated temperatures.
Tunable & Reliable
Tune the microenvironment to suit your cells. The optimal stiffness is achieved by dilution with cell culture medium, and the culturing matrix can be customized easily by simply adding components such as growth factors or proteins directly to the gel.
Microscope and high throughput compatible
GrowDex hydrogels do not have auto-fluorescence so imaging with any microscope or high content imaging system is simple.The ambient handling of the hydrogels makes them ideal for high throughput assays.
With over 150 different assay protocols available GrowDex is our original hydrogel. Highly biocompatible GrowDex has been used widely for the culture of primary cells through to iPS and ES cells.
GrowDex-T brings superior imaging quality for phase contrast and brightfield imaging. This hydrogel is completely transparent making imaging and automated analysis easy.
GrowDase enzyme breaks down GrowDex hydrogel to form a solution in an easy one step efficient cell recovery process.
GrowInk Bioinks for 3D printing, can be mixed directly with cells for bioprinting applications. The matrix can be customised by the addition of molecules, such as growth factors or adhesion proteins, as needed by your specific cells.
