GrowDex®- the natural hydrogel for 3D cell culture


GrowDex is an animal free, ready to use hydrogel that mimics the extracellular matrix (ECM) and supports cell growth and differentiation with consistent results.  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.

Bridging the gap between in vitro and in vivo studies GrowDex can be used for 3D cell culture for spheroid and /organoids, in personalised medicine, regenerative medicine, organ-on-a-chip models, drug release studies and more. GrowDex hydrogel is also manufactured according to ISO13485 standards guaranteeing the same great quality every batch.


Easy Assay Set Up


GrowDex is simple to use just dilute with media and add your cells, or make a layer and add cells on top. As GrowDex is a hydrogel already no gelation or cross-linking steps are needed and the stiffness of the gel can be fine tuned to suit your cells by dilution.
