SpongeCol® is a collagen sponge with an interpenetrating, columnar porous architecture structure. SpongeCol® contains unique columnar porous network which permits cells and nutrients to flow completely through the interpenetrating pores and provides an increased surface area for cell attachment, growth and migration.
SpongeCol® is composed of highly purified Type I collagen which best supports the attachment, proliferation, and function of cells. The collagen is lightly cross-linked for increased mechanical strength and durability for short and long term tissue culture yet is still biodegradable over the longer-term. The diameter of the pores ranges from 100 to 400 micron with the average diameter being approximately 200 microns. The collagen disc is approximately 4 mm or 21 mm in diameter and 1.5 mm thick. The sponge discs fits into a 96-well (4 mm disc) culture plate or sanitary luer connectors for flow perfusion. Each package contains 25 (4 mm) collagen sponge discs.
This product is terminally sterilized and ready-to-use.
