Short chain oligo-peptides
Our specially designed, short chain oligo-peptides are fully synthetic and spontaneously self-assemble into long fibres. These long fibres then entangle with each other to form 3D networks with a high-water content – hydrogels.
We can influence how these hydrogels assemble by controlling the chemistry of the peptide building blocks and their functionality. Using our technology, we have created PeptiGels® – hydrogels with a range of mechanical, chemical and functional properties so you can find the right matrix for your cells’ needs.
