We aim to get your PeptiGel® to you as quickly as possible. Once we have received your order, your PeptiGels® will typically arrive within 2–3 weeks.
If you have ordered a bespoke PeptiGel®, these can take longer to arrive, generally 4–6 weeks. In this situation, we will notify you of your estimated delivery date when you place your order.
The most commonly used cell density is 4 million cells/mL. However, PeptiGels are suitable for a broad range of cell densities from 2–40 million cells/mL in various studies.
PeptiGels® have a shelf life of 18 months. Please note, we also advise that PeptiGels® are stored at 4 °C.
With regards to cell media and/or in vivo studies, PeptiGel® Alpha1 has been designed for short-term studies and lasts for 4–5 days. All other PeptiGels® have been shown to last for ≥45 days.
Our PeptiGels® are securely packed to reduce the possibility of bubbles forming during a bumpy journey to you. However, if there are a few bubbles when you unpack your products, simply place in the PeptiGel® vial into a 50 mL centrifuge tube and centrifuge at 3000 rpm for one minute. You should now have a bubble-free PeptiGel® ready for use. For more information on how to work with PeptiGels® check out this video.
