Successful engineering of tissue constructs may one day allow routine replacement of damaged organs and tissues. Alginates are well established as matrix materials for cells or tissue within regenerative medicine, and have a promising potential in a variety of biomedical applications. Alginates suitable for tissue engineering are today commercially available from NovaMatrix under the tradename PRONOVA.
Pure alginate often will resist attachment by cells. NOVATACHTM is used for improved cell functionality and viability by promoting the ability of cells to attach to the alginate polymer. A variety of peptide-coupled alginates are available to facilitate and promote interaction between cells and alginate-based scaffolds and matrices. 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.
We offer NOVATACH peptide-coupled alginates in vials containing 100 mgs of micro-filtered and lyophilized material. The following peptide sequences are currently available:
- NOVATACH MVG GRGDSP (GRGDSP-coupled high G-content high MW alginate)
- NOVATACH M RGD (GRGDSP-coupled alginate)
- NOVATACH G VAPG (VAPG-coupled alginate)
- NOVATACH M REDV (REDV-coupled alginate)
