Hydrogels are commonly used for cell culture applications as they provide structural support as well as the transport of cell culture media, nutrients and waste products. Our PeptiGels, can be used for 2D and 3D cell culture and have a range of charges and mechanical stiffness to allow you to find the most suitable environment for your cells’ needs.
