PhotoCol® Methacrylated Collagen

PhotoCol® Methacrylated Collagen

from 290.00

Advanced BioMatrix’s PhotoCol® is a purified methacrylated Type I bovine collagen.

PhotoCol® provides 3D collagen gels with the unique attributes to be prepared at various concentrations and crosslinked to provide various gel stiffness. The PhotoCol® kit consists of purified methacrylated Type I bovine collagen as the core component with support reagents for 3D bioprinting.  The PhotoCol kit consists of:

  • Collagen, Type I, methacrylated, lyophilized (100 mg)

  • Acetic Acid, 20 mM solution (50 mL)

  • Neutralization solution (10 mL)

  • LAP Photoinitiator (0.5 g)

The methacrylated Type I collagen is produced from telo-peptide intact bovine collagen where the collagen has been modified by reacting the free amines, primarily the e-amines groups of the lysine residues as well as the a-amines groups on the N-termini.  Approximately 40% of the total lysine residues of the collagen molecule have been methacrylated. The collagen is extracted from bovine hide and contains a high monomer content. The collagen starting material was isolated from a closed herd and purified using controlled manufacturing processes. A bottle of 20 mM acetic acid solution is provided to solubilize the lyophilized methacrylated collagen at concentrations ranging from 3 to 8 mg/ml.The neutralization solution consists of an alkaline 10X phosphate buffered saline (PBS) solution which provides physiological salts and pH in the final mixture.The photoinitiator allows for visible light crosslinking of the collagen at 405 nm.
