PS, coated with rat tail collagen type I. Collagen type I is an extracellular matrix protein, which in vivo influences adhesion, migration and proliferation, amongst other processes. Many otherwise difficult-to-cultivate cells adhere to collagen type I and show positive growth behaviour. For certain cell lines collagen type I also has an influence on differentiation and morphology.
- Improved cell adhesion, proliferation and growth of endothelial cells, hepatocytes, muscle cells, pheochromocytoma cells (PC12), as well as other cell types
- Suitable for serum-free or serum-reduced cell cultivation
- Quality control tested to demonstrate promotion of the adhesion and proliferation of human fibrocarcoma cells
Shelf life: 24 months at room temperature
