Some of our customers and collaborators have kindly shared their views and opinions on the use of PeptiGels® and PeptiInks® within their work. Research areas vary widely, from cancer, to stem cells, through to bioprinting. Discover how they have been using our products below.

‘PeptiGels® have proven to provide a favourable environment for stem cells and be a vehicle for the translational research’

Dr Evgeny Kushnerev
NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer in Oral Surgery

‘I tried other peptide-based hydrogels, but these either had too much batch to batch variation or were only suitable for 2D cell culture. With PeptiGel® products I was able to grow 3D cell cultures with the desired morphology to aid my research on a variety of cell and tissue types.’

Prof Julie Gough
Professor of Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering at the University of Manchester

‘PeptiGels® are very easy to work with. They are simple to use and not time consuming at all, and best of all they give consistent results’

Dr Natasha Lewis
Biomaterials Scientist – FTP Fellow, Cell Guidance Systems

‘PeptiGels® can be used as scaffolds for the culture and differentiation of hdASCs in vitro towards a Schwann cell-like phenotype. We are continuing to explore the potential of PeptiGels® to generate fully-synthetic bioengineered nerve grafts for the treatment of peripheral nerve injuries’

Dr Adam Reid
Senior Clinical Lecturer in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Manchester

‘We were excited to use PeptiGels® as a platform for cell biology studies and tailor the hydrogel properties to mimic the mechanical and chemical environment of both healthy and cancer tissue’

Dr Armando Del Rio Hernandez
Senior Lecturer, Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London

‘PeptiInks® offer excellent compromise between the physiochemical and biological properties of the printed structure to ensure it retains its structural integrity in addition to a high cell viability’

Dr Marco Domingos
Senior Lecturer in Bioprinting and Regenerative Medicine
