Hyaluronan Gels are recommended as a starting point for building extracellular matrix and optimization of a cell’s microenvironment. Hyaluronan Gels can be combined with other extracellular matrix components such as collagen. Hyaluronan (also known as sodium hyaluronate or hyaluronic acid) is a polysaccharide composed of repeating disaccharide units of N-acetyl glucosamine and glucuronate linked by β 1-3 and β 1-4 glycosidic bonds. Hyaluronan is a physiological substance that is widely distributed in the extracellular matrix of connective tissues in both animals and humans. For example, it is present in the aqueous humor of the eye, the synovial fluid, the skin and the umbilical cord.
Hyaluronan Gels are ready-to-use, sterile gels that are provided in easy-to-use syringes. These products can be applied directly into a culture system without additional formulation or sterilization.
Flexibility: Hyaluronan Gels are provided in a variety of packs for flexibility to the researcher who wants to use varying concentrations, viscosities, and molecular sizes of Hyaluronan. 1. Concentration: Available products span concentration of 1%, 1.7% and 3.0%. 2. Viscosity: Products supplied with varying viscosities of 6,000 cps, 10,000 cps and 45,000 cps. 3.
