Extralink® Lite (PEGDA, polyethylene glycol diacrylate) 2.5 mL vials contain 12.5 mg of diacrylated PEG. Vials are blanketed by nitrogen and under a slight vacuum.
Extralink® is polyethylene diacrylate (PEGDA) with a molecular weight of 3500 Da. It is a thiol-reactive crosslinker that convalently reacts with the thiol groups in Glycosil®, Heprasil® and Gelin-S® to form viscoelastic hydrogels. Extralink® Lite vials are >80% acrylated and supplied as the crosslinking component in the HyStem® hydrogel kits.
Extralink® Lite is used to chemically crosslink Glycosil. The gelation time ranges from as short as 5 minutes to as long as a couple of hours, depending upon the amount of Extralink used and the concentration/dilution of the Glycosil.
Extralink® Lite is used in place of Extralink for applications where Gelin-S is not included. The higher relative concentration of Glycosil requires less crosslinker to emulate the gelation time and stiffness of HyStem-C and HyStem-HP.
