PRODUCTS

alginate_logo

Alginate

is a linear polysaccharide consisting of (1,4)-linked b-D-mannuronate (M) and its C-5 epimer α-L-guluronate (G). The monomers can appear in homopolymeric blocks of consecutive G-residues (G-blocks), consecutive M-residues (M-blocks), alternating M and G-residues (MG-blocks) or randomly organized blocks.

Peptide-coupled alginate

NOVATACH™ is a series of peptide-coupled alginates which facilitate and promote interaction between cells and alginate-based scaffolds and matrices resulting in improved cell functionality and viability. NOVATACH™ extends the range of high quality, well documented, ultrapure and low endotoxin PRONOVA™ alginates for cell therapy and tissue engineering applications and has utility in formulations where cell-to-matrix interaction is beneficial.

Hyaluronate_LOGO

Sodium hyaluronate

fermented from Streptococcus zooepidemicus, is a linear copolymer composed of (ß-1,4)-linked D-glucuronate and (ß-1,3)-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine. Sodium Hyaluronate is an abundant glycosaminoglycan found in the extracellular matrix of skin, joints, eyes and most organs and tissues of all higher animals.
